Evening Storms Possible With Threat Of Damaging Winds, Flash Flooding

CREATED Jul 8, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Strong to severe thunderstorms could develop across the mid-state Tuesday evening, bringing damaging winds and heavy rainfall.

NewsChannel 5 meteorologist Lelan Statom said highs would reach around 90 degrees in the afternoon before the storm system moved in.

Starting around 5 p.m, the National Weather Service said severe thunderstorms are possible around Interstate 40 and west of Interstate 65, and lasting until 8 p.m.

The biggest threat with the storms will be damaging winds and heavy rainfall, which could cause localized flash flooding in some areas.

By Wednesday, a cold front will slowly push through the area and keep showers and a few storms in the forecast for the next couple of days.

The NWS said severe thunderstorms will be possible again Wednesday for areas south of interstate 40, especially for those closer to the Alabama state line. Damaging wind gusts and heavy rainfall will also be the main threats.
