Unseasonable warm moist air is expected ahead of this front, with temperatures in the 60’s and 70’s.  This mixture of warm air will help provide fuel for the widespread showers and strong to severe thunderstorms that will form along the front.

Wind gusts are expected to increase significantly Tuesday night.  These powerful winds may lead to some downed trees and powers lines.

A squall line of showers and strong to severe thunderstorms is expected to form and reach the Tennessee River after midnight Tuesday. This front will quickly push across middle Tennessee before exiting the mid-state area Wednesday morning.
