Wednesday morning’s commute will bring showers to the Tennessee Valley. Make sure you have your umbrella before heading out. While showers will move through from time to time, the day won’t be a washout. Thunderstorms may move in by Wednesday evening.

A weather system, including a cold front, will push a line of heavy rain and possible strong storms our way from Mississippi Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Rainfall of 0.50 to 0.75 inches will be possible. Storms may bring winds of 50-55 mph. An isolated severe storm capable of damaging winds can’t be ruled out.

Outside of any storms, it will be a windy period. Winds could gust up to 35-45 mph which could lead to a few power outages. Isolated higher wind gusts will be possible in the mountainous terrain. A Wind Advisory may be needed during this time period.

Stay with the Weather Authority as we track this system.
