Scattered showers and storms develop overnight in Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee bringing another good chance of “scattered” heavy downpours to the Tennessee Valley for Wednesday morning.  Some of the showers/storms may produce intense lightning, gusty winds and torrential rainfall (more than 2″ is possible in a few isolated spots).  Be on the lookout for rain in the morning – it won’t happen for every community, but some will get a soaking.

More scattered storms are possible throughout the day on Wednesday.  Expect some rain in the area for the morning drive – a break – then more showers and storms developing in the afternoon.  Any storms that develop could be rather heavy!  There is potential for a few briefly severe storms in the afternoon and evening; we will keep a close watch and keep you posted on everything happening with the stormy weather.


Keep up to date!  The term “scattered storms” means that no one can know precisely where a single storm will develop.  If you have to be outdoors working, I strongly suggest that you plan to do what you can with the understanding that a downpour can set you back.  These spotty showers and storms are disruptive, but we have a lot of tools to keep you ahead of the game:’s Maps & Radar Page
