On Thursday there will be an increasing chance of severe thunderstorms throughout the day. There will be the potential of damaging winds, hail, and isolated tornadoes.
There is a developing weather system that will be moving northeast across Mississippi and the Tennessee River Valley. The prevailing cold front will allow for the development of thunderstorms in the way of a squall line. There is also the potential of isolated thunderstorms to develop ahead of the front in a warm moist atmosphere through the day.
There will be a developing pressure gradient between high pressure to our eats, and the low pressure passing to our north.
Winds will gradually pick up through the day Thursday from the south - southwest. We could even see gusts up to 35 mph, and higher in thunderstorms.
