NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Scattered showers and storms are expected Wednesday, thanks to a low-pressure system moving across the southeast and an approaching cold front from the northwest.

During the day, the rain and storm chances will be the greatest along Interstate 65 and to the east.

Later in the day, as the cold front dives our way, a few showers and storms could move in from the northwest across more of the area during the evening and early in the night.

Right now, the Storm Prediction Center part of the NewsChannel 5 viewing area under a marginal risk for severe storms. That's a level one risk on our scale of 5, with the primary threats being damaging wind gusts up to 50 mph and small hail.

Behind the front, highs are only going to be in the mid to upper 70s Thursday and that's below our average of 85°.
