Heavy rain expected overnight

We continue to wait on a disturbance that will move closer to the Tennessee Valley overnight tonight. We are still expecting some widespread heavy rain and stronger storms. A few areas will see storms develop overnight with locally heavy rain and strong gust winds.

Friday afternoon looks warmer and this will mean more fuel for storms. Strong to severe storms will develop in the afternoon with locally heavy rain, significant lightning and the potential for isolated damaging wind gusts over 50 mph. Storm chances will continue overnight Friday into Saturday afternoon Rainfall totals are still expected to be between 1 and 2 inches with some isolated three inch totals possible through Saturday night.

Drier weather with a slight cool down to begin the next work week. A front will move through Sunday and lower our rain chances for a few days. Afternoon highs will be in the middle 80s next week with morning lows in the middle to upper 60s.
