NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A Storm 5 Alert will be in effect for Mother’s Day from 12 to 8 p.m.

While the focus should be all about mom, we need to also remain weather-aware Sunday afternoon and evening.

Ahead of a fairly strong cold front, much of Sunday morning will be spent with a southerly wind helping to warm temperatures and make it somewhat humid outside. It will be windy as well throughout the day with a strong south-southwesterly wind between 15 mph-25 mph, and gusting over 40 mph at times.

Damaging wind will be the main concern with any storms that move through, but it’s looking likely that some heavy downpours could lead to concerns for flash flooding. Secondary threats will be hail and tornadoes.

Storms are expected in two rounds. The first will be around lunchtime from 12 to 2 p.m.
