7:50 PM: The severe weather threat has ended for the Tennessee Valley Wednesday evening, but more storms are likely on Thursday!
5:53 PM: Severe storms have knocked down trees and power lines in Franklin County, and there’s an unconfirmed report of trees and lines down around Crockett State Park in Lawrence County, Tennessee – possibly causing a fire on the back side of the park.
These storms will move east and weaken this evening through 9 PM.
2:30 PM: We’re watching the radar this afternoon for a few heavy storms that have the potential to drop a lot of heavy rain (more than 1-2″ in an hour), bring gusty winds, small hail and frequent lightning. Severe weather is not highly likely, but one or two storms could briefly turn severe through about 9 PM.
Expect scattered evening storms in North Alabama and Southern Tennessee to last through at least 9 PM; some of them could dump 1-2” of rain in less than an hour’s time. More scattered storms are likely on Thursday and Friday, and some of them could be severe with strong winds and hail.
