You'll need to crank up your air-conditioning as temperatures will be into the low 80s in most spots across the Tennessee Valley! The wind will be pulling in warm and moist air, which will foster instability ahead of the front.
Wednesday will be a blustery day with winds sustained around 15 to 20 miles per hour with gusts around 30 miles per hour. The best chances for strong storms will be this evening between 10PM and 3AM. We may get some strong thunderstorms embedded in the rain; with gusts over 40 miles per hour and small hail possible.
Severe threat will be limited to brief periods of moderate rain and lightning early.
Today: Mostly cloudy with a 70% chance for storms and a high near 74 degrees. A slight risk means scattered severe thunderstorms are possible, but would be short-lived and not widespread.
