A strong upper level storm system will move across the Tennessee

question is how much breaks in the cloud cover occur allowing the

thunderstorms, the main concern will be isolated tornadoes, hail
up to quarter size, damaging winds and localized heavy rainfall.

The greatest threat of severe storms will be along and east of
interstate 75, and between Noon and 5 pm ET. Please stay tuned to
the latest forecast from the National Weather Service.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

...Strong to Severe Thunderstorms are Possible both Saturday and
