Grab your umbrella and our Live Alert 19 weather app before you head out the door. The latest data shows the front approaching the region with scattered showers and storms through late afternoon. Strong thunderstorms will be possible along with an isolated severe storm. The timing for the strongest storms will be during the afternoon.
The Storm Prediction Center has the Tennessee Valley under a marginal risk (Level 1) for a severe storm on Thursday. Gusty winds and small hail will be the main threats from any storms. With a saturated atmosphere, any storms will be able to tap into that deep moisture leading to the threat of downpours. Lightning is always a concern when it comes to storms.
