A STORMY START:
Abundant Gulf moisture meets up with a potent storm system moving into the Ohio and Tennessee Valley regions today. We will see two rounds of showers and thunderstorms. The first round this morning will bring rounds of rain and a few strong thunderstorms with heavy rainfall at times. As a warm front lifts north, the rains will subside around midday. It will be breezy and warm with highs near 80 degrees.
A second and possibly more potent wave of thunderstorms forming a squall line is forecast to move through later this evening with the potential for severe thunderstorms. The possibility exists for damaging winds, large hail, flooding rains and even a few isolated tornadoes. Much of the intensity of the storms depends on the amount of instability that exists between this morning’s action and what’s to come tonight.
COOLER DAYS AHEAD:
The stormy weather moves on by Tuesday morning followed by much cooler, Fall-like air in the coming days. There will be a chance of a stray shower or two Wednesday, then mostly sunny skies return for the remainder of the work week. Highs will fall into the cool 60s and 70s, lows will dip into the mid and upper 40s to low 50s.
