A potent upper level storm system will drag a strong cold front through the Piney Woods later this evening, bringing with it the chance for some strong to severe thunderstorms.
We will see a line of thunderstorms move from west to east as we head through the late afternoon and early evening hours. The best time frame for these storms will take place between 5-8pm today.
Along this line of storms, damaging winds of 50 mph or greater will be the main threat. Although a brief tornado is not out of the question, it is highly unlikely at this time. Heavy downpours and lots of lightning will also accompany these storms as they quickly race eastward along the front.

Behind the front, our skies will clear out and our temperatures will take a bid dip once again as we head through the upcoming week. Morning lows will dip into the middle 30's for several nights, with some areas possibly getting close to seeing their first freeze this fall season.
