Very Isolated Severe Storm Chance Today; Better Chances Tomorrow and Thursday

Yesterday, we saw some interesting weather occur across southern Middle TN and along the Cumberland Plateau. The only significant reports we received was from the Columbia area where hail and strong, damaging winds were reported. Hail the size of quarters and winds in the 70 mph range occurred and brought down trees very close to downtown Columbia.

Today, we will see much of the same, but I believe we all will have a chance at seeing an isolated severe storm pop. Now the chance of you seeing rain is very small (10% chance). This is going to be an event that a mile or two down the road is going to make a difference. If you do get under one of these stronger storms. You should be aware that you might very well see some hail (anywhere from pea to possibly quarter size) and gusty winds (60-70 mph inthe strongest of storms possible). Lightning will also be present, like always, so just be aware of that.

Nashville: low 90's; 10% chance
Clarksville: low 90's; 10% chance
Cookeville: upper 80's to low 90's; 10% chance
Columbia: low 90's; 10-15% chance
Manchester: low 90's: 10-15% chance
