Scattered showers and storms continue to work through early this afternoon as seen from the latest radar scan (12:35pm). Pushing through the afternoon, scattered showers and storms will continue to work in from the west bringing strong storms at times. East Tennessee remains under a Marginal Risk for severe storms today with the biggest threat being small hail, strong winds, and localized heavy rainfall. The best potential will be through the afternoon and early evening.
Model guidance depicts scattered storms working in this afternoon. As they do so, a cold front is trailing to the west and will bring bettering conditions for Friday. A few lingering showers are possible in the morning tomorrow (mainly for the Smokies), otherwise cloud cover will be decreasing and drier air will fill in. Saturday will be the best day of the weekend with partly to mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid to upper 80s. Afternoon showers/storms return Sunday and early next week.
Heavy showers and storms remain possible this afternoon, so remain weather aware. An isolated storm cell could become severe, so have a way to receive alerts (Twitter/Facebook @SecretCityWx).
