Weather AWARE Thursday as storm coverage increases.

Tonight: Spotty showers and storms (40%). Low: 71°

Thursday:(AWARE): Showers & Storms Likely. heavy Rain Possible (70%). High: 80°

Friday: Summer Begins, Most Areas Dry (20%): High: 88°
Storm coverage looks a little lower today. There will still be some shower and storms developing but widespread storms will be concentrated over West Tennessee today. 

We will see the rain chance climb again on Thursday as a slow moving weather system  finally moves through.

This will be another Weather AWARE Day as heavy rain and strong thunderstorms will be be possible as this cold front moves toward the region. The increase of storm chances on Thursday will quickly drop off Friday as slightly drier and more stable air returns, briefly.

It will stay muggy and overnight lows will remain in the upper 60s to near 70° range, while daytime highs will stay seasonable in the mid  to upper 80s. 

At this point, it looks like a typical summer pattern will return for the weekend into the beginning of next week with warm humid conditions and scattered daytime storms. We will monitor for potential Weather AWARE days next week.

Additionally, some areas will have likely seen repeated thunderstorms containing heavy downpours by the time Thursday comes around, so the potential of localized flash  flooding is possible by the end of the week and upcoming weekend.
