A hot and humid pattern is beginning to evolve across our area. There will be chances for relief from isolated shower and storm chances in the afternoons/evenings. Any storm that develops in this heat will be capable of being strong to even briefly severe. Those are expected to be very isolated, at best. Be ready to stay cool and hydrated.
This Week’s Hazards
Today’s risk is dependent upon how well a complex of storms hold together as it drops down from Kentucky this evening. Monday’s threat is based on another complex of storms that could brush the northern plateau. I’ll keep you posted! Keep in mind that any summer storm, while isolated, can be quite strong to severe, even if only in a small area.

SPC T-storm Outlook for Today
This is the Storm Prediction Center’s outlook for today. Much of Middle TN is now outlined in the MARGINAL RISK for severe storms. This is dependent upon how a complex of storms holds together, as it drops in from Kentucky this evening.
