A Storm 5 Alert has been issued for Thursday afternoon in anticipation of more strong to severe storms moving into the Middle Tennessee area. 

An unsettled weather pattern has caused scattered storms to pop up nearly every day this week. 

A line of strong storms, mostly south of Nashville, began moving through the area this morning. Wind and large hail were reported in Maury and Williamson counties. 

Meteorologist Lelan Statom said more storms are headed this way from southeast Missouri. The primary threats are damaging winds, hail and heavy rains.  

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for parts of West and Middle Tennessee until 7 p.m. 

Storm chances will decrease Friday and Saturday as the heat increases. Lelan said heat indices will top out in the triple digits each day this weekend.
