Severe storm risk Friday; cool, dry weekend ahead

Middle Tennessee will face a risk of severe thunderstorms Friday, especially northwest of Nashville, the forecast shows. 

Severe storms are possible Friday afternoon through evening, according to the National Weather Service. 

“Main threats will be damaging winds with any severe storms, but hail, localized flooding, and an isolated tornado or two possible,” NWS Nashville tweeted on Thursday. 

Waverly and Clarksville are under a slight threat for severe weather, while Nashville, Franklin, Columbia and Murfreesboro are under a marginal threat.

Friday’s storms and high of 82 will give way to sunny skies and fall temperatures for the weekend, with highs topping out in the mid-60s through Sunday. Overnight lows will dip into the mid-40s.
