Quick radar snapshot at 10:36...
Much like the past couple of days, storms will form this afternoon across middle Tennessee...Where they do, expect brief heavy rain, frequent lightning, and some gusty winds. Most should remain below severe limits.
155 PM CDT TUE SEP 10 2013
...SOME STRONG THUNDERSTORMS WITH BRIEF HEAVY RAINFALL POSSIBLE
ACROSS MIDDLE TENNESSEE THROUGH THE AFTERNOON HOURS...
ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS CONTINUE TO
DEVELOP ACROSS MIDDLE TENNESSEE THIS AFTERNOON...MAINLY ALONG
AND WEST OF THE INTERSTATE 65 CORRIDOR AND ALONG AND SOUTH OF THE
INTERSTATE 40 CORRIDOR. SOME OF THESE THUNDERSTORMS WILL REACH
STRONG THRESHOLDS...RESULTING IN BRIEF HEAVY DOWNPOURS AND HOURLY
RAINFALL RATES OF ONE...TO APPROACHING AROUND TWO INCHES AN
HOUR...WITH SOME OF THE STRONGER STORMS. THIS COULD CAUSE MINOR
FLOODING OF TYPICAL LOW LYING PRONE AREAS ALONG WITH PONDING OF
WATER ON AREA ROADWAYS. CAUTION IS ADVISED TRAVELING ACROSS AREA
ROADWAYS THIS AFTERNOON DUE TO THIS PONDING OF WATER POTENTIAL.
THUNDERSTORMS WILL ALSO PRODUCE FREQUENT CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING
STRIKES AND GUSTY WINDS OF 40 TO 50 MPH. WITH THE ELEVATION OF THE
FREEZING LEVEL RATHER HIGH IN THE ATMOSPHERE THIS AFTERNOON...THE
POTENTIAL OF HAIL REACHING THE SURFACE IS RATHER LOW.
ADDITIONAL STORMS WEST OF NASHVILLE THIS AFTERNOON...
2pm temperatures are in the lower 90s across the area, with the one exception being along the plateau counties, where a little rain cooled air has dropped those readings in to the 80s.
Lots of sun for most of us this afternoon, and any showers that do form will likely not last long.
Not much different for most of the central parts of the country this afternoon either. Low to mid 90s are common this afternoon.
Cooldown by the end of the week as a cold front pushes cooler and drier air across the state into the weekend. Enjoy.
A hint of fall tonight, as high pressure to our north will drive cooler and drier air across the area tonight. Would not be surprised if a few of the normally colder locations along the Plateau, and valleys actually fall into the upper 50s.
Another gorgeous day Wednesday, lots of sunshine, lower humidity...and day time readings holding to the middle 80s.
