Strong storms moving east as the night continues
First Alert Forecast
We’re continuing to track showers and a few severe storms across the Tennessee Valley this afternoon. These storms are rather elevated, so main threats include hail, strong damaging wind gusts, and heavy rainfall. We have a better chance for seeing strong to severe storms develop later this evening mainly between 8 p.m. through 3 a.m. early Wednesday morning.
A FIRST ALERT is in effect for this evening and into the overnight hours for the Tennessee Valley, and areas west of I-65 have the highest threat for severe weather. All modes of severe weather are possible, but our primary hazards include damaging wind gusts up to 50+ mph, very heavy rainfall, and hail. The tornado threat is low, but it is not completely zero, so please stay weather alert throughout the day!
Rainfall totals through Wednesday morning could amount up to 1 and 3 inches, so watch for flash flooding and ponding on roadways. Rain will be ending likely before sunrise with clearing skies and breezy winds out of the north. Temperatures will fall quickly through the day as the front pushes across the area, so expect afternoon highs to only reach the 40s. We’ll stay dry and cool through the rest of your work week with 60s and rain returning by the weekend.
