Warm temperatures are expected for the Clarksville area today as a strong southwest breeze is expected to develop over the area. A weak disturbance will cause for a few showers to develop over the area, but a wide spread event is not expected. The main bulk of the precipitation is expected to fall on Thursday, Halloween, putting a damper on trick-or-treating. This is expected to be a strong frontal system that moves through the region and numerous showers and thunderstorms will move through with this system. Some of the showers and thunderstorms could be relatively strong to severe with strong winds and hail as the main concerns. The rain will move out of the region overnight Thursday and will allow for mostly sunny skies to develop for the upcoming weekend. Also with the sunny skies, temperatures are expected to return to cooler values with highs in the lower to middle sixties.
