KNOXVILLE (WATE) - After a warm a breezy day, a few isolated thunderstorms will popup this evening (20%) ahead of a main line of strong storms back to our west.
Middle Tennessee will get severe weather during the evening hours today, andthat system tracks east into our viewing area by midnight.
These storms willpack a punch with potentially damaging winds in excess of 60 mph, heavy rain,and loud thunder.
We can't rule out an isolated tornado, although we are not expectinga widespread tornado outbreak in our viewing area.
The timing on this looks tobe from 11 p.m. until around 3 a.m., and then some rain showers will linger untilaround 9 a.m. on Friday morning.
Since this is happening during the nighttimehours, it's a good idea to have either a NOAA weather radio or our WATE WeatherApp. Our WATE App is free, just search "Knoxville Weather" in your phone'sstore. One of the neat things about this app is that you can set it to followyour current location. It will sound an alert to wake you up if a warning isissued. You can also set it for other counties if you have family in otherparts of the state.
