A line of thunderstorms will blast through Nashville later tonight, with some of the storms containing strong wind gusts and heavy rain.
The storms have had a history of producing wind damage, flooding and even some tornadoes in parts of Arkansas, western Tennessee and northern Mississippi. Numerous thunderstorms capable of spawning tornadoes were rolling through northern Mississippi as of 9:30 p.m. local time.
Fortunately, with the loss of daytime heating, thunderstorms will eventually weaken as they roll farther east overnight, so the best threat for severe weather should be to the south and west of Nashville. Still, any thunderstorm will be capable of producing flooding downpours and vivid, dangerous lightning.
