NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The NewsChannel 5 weather team has called a Storm 5 Alert for early Sunday morning.

While Saturday's scattered storms may ruin some of your weekend plans, our chief concern is a line of storms that will move into the area around midnight to 1 a.m. Damaging winds are possible with a chance for hail and heavy downpour.

The threat of tornadoes is low but can't be ruled out.

We'll get a break from the showers midday Sunday but the afternoon heat could fire up another round of storms. The Storm 5 Alert will expire at 10 a.m. Sunday but could be extended as conditions develop. Wind and heavy rains will be the key threats for that round of storms.
