A wind advisory will go into effect for all counties starting at 3:00 p.m. today and will go through 6:00 a.m. Wednesday. Expect sustained winds of 15 to 30 mph with gusts up to 40 mph. Scattered rain showers will push in from the west late this evening into Wednesday morning, and lows will be in the mid 50s by daybreak.

Wednesday is a FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY for the potential of strong to severe storms during the afternoon and evening hours. A warm front will lift north across the Tennessee Valley and may be the trigger of some severe storms. Storms can produce damaging winds, large hail and even tornadoes, so it would be a good idea to brush up on your severe weather plan now. It looks like the severe threat will diminish overnight Wednesday, but some heavy rainfall will still be expected.

Thursday is also a FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY for the potential of severe thunderstorms as a cold front approaches from the west. We will start off Thursday in the warm sector with plenty of warm and moist air to fuel these strong to severe storms. All forms of severe weather will be possible starting during the mid morning and continuing into the afternoon and early evening. Once the cold front swings through, the severe weather threat will end Thursday night and temperatures will fall into the 30s by Friday morning.

Friday will be much cooler with highs in the middle 40s and mainly sunny skies. The weekend looks quite nice with highs in the 50s and 60s for Saturday and Sunday.
