Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop across the Clarksville area today as the system from the Gulf of Mexico continues to slowly move through the region. The best chance of precipitation will happen this afternoon and evening, during the warmest part of the day. The energy with this system will continue to affect the region for the beginning of the weekend as scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected. The risk for precipitation will begin to diminish by the end of the weekend as the energy from the Gulf system moves eastward and a brief ridge moves in. This will be followed by the next system that will slowly move through the region once again bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms to the region. Temperatures for this time period will be in the middle eighties today and tomorrow due to mostly cloudy skies and then in the lower nineties for Sunday into Monday as partly cloudy skies are expected. With any thunderstorms that develop, there is the risk for them to become strong to severe with heavy rain and gusty winds as the main concerns.
