Some heavier thunderstorms are still possible, but due to the lack of storms so far and the fact that this upper-air disturbance will be moving out of the area soon, the risk of severe weather is diminishing. In fact, the Storm Prediction Center has dropped the SLIGHT RISK for the Tennessee Valley.
A few showers and storms are possible for the rest of the afternoon, but don’t cancel outdoor sports practices, games, etc. These showers will pass through quickly.
The storm system arriving Thursday night/Friday morning is looking a little more concerning than it did just about 24 hours ago. We still expect a slow weakening trend in the storms as they move east through Alabama and Tennessee Friday morning, but that does not clear us from a severe weather threat completely. It’s something we’ll keep tabs on for the rest of the week, and as always, we’ll keep you updated. More on this threat is detailed at WHNT.com/Weather.
