A cold front will move through the Clarksville area today bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms to the region. This system has a new wave of energy moving along the front today and this will allow for a few thunderstorms to become severe today. The main concerns for severe weather are gusty winds and heavy rain. The precipitation is expected to end overnight tonight, but skies are expected to remain partly to mostly cloudy through the rest of the week and into the weekend. This is due to a deep upper level trough over the eastern United States. The presence of this trough will also help keep temperatures cool with highs in the middle to upper sixties through Saturday.
