Windy cloudy conditions will persist overnight tonight, with widespread showers expected tomorrow. Scattered storms will work into our area from sunrise through lunchtime, a few storms may be strong with gusty wind, but the better severe threat won't arrive until the afternoon hours. A very quick moving line of storms will howl across our area from lunchtime through the early evening. Damaging wind gusts in excess of 70mph will be the primary threat, but some quick tornadoes will also be possible. The strongest storms will likely be in the Nashville area around 5pm which may snarl the afternoon commute; so, make sure you stay weather aware on Thursday. Temperatures will tumble back down into frigid territory Friday.
