Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Middle Tennessee
National Weather Service Nashville TN
237 PM CDT Sun Mar 26 2017

.DISCUSSION...

At least two storm systems are expected this week. The first arrives
Monday as a weak upper level disturbance moves through the Tennessee
and Ohio Valleys. This will bring a good chance for thunderstorms to
the entire region. Some storms may be severe with damaging winds and
hail. Some rain will linger in the east early Tuesday, otherwise
drier weather is expected Tuesday and Wednesday with continued above
average temperatures.

A new storm will move from Texas into the central U.S. on Thursday.
This should bring another round of thunderstorms...some possibly
severe...to the entire region. Following this system, expect drier
and slightly cooler weather late Friday into next weekend.
