Showers & Isolated Storms Today
Good morning! Don't forget to throw in an umbrella as showers have arrived across parts of the Plateau and western edge of East Tennessee. Progressing through the day, SPC has placed East Tennessee under a Marginal Risk for severe weather. I still am pushing towards not-likely, but daytime heating could fire-up some afternoon convection strong enough to be border-line severe. Gusty winds and small hail will be the main threats with moderate to heavy showers/storms possible at times.
The play-by-play for the day has showers this morning followed by a line of showers and storms this afternoon and early evening. Again some of these could be stronger at times but I am not anticipating much in the severe category (but don't entirely rule this out). We'll keep you posted on any severe warnings that could be issued as this line works eastward through today. As we push into Friday, we dry back out a bit before another round of showers and isolated showers return Saturday. This will again be a quick hitter with sunshine and warming temps Sunday and early next week.
That does it for today! Showers are likely on and off with a few isolated storms possible early this afternoon. Better conditions arrive to end the work week tomorrow with highs near 80 degrees.
