Thunderstorms north of the city to diminish
A couple of lines of thunderstorms, some of which are severe over northwest TN, are moving along an outflow boundary north of the metro area. These storms are moving east, while developing along the southbound outflow boundary. At 9:30pm, the boundary is moving through Tipton County headed into the northern suburbs. More t'storms are expected to develop, but as daytime heating wanes, the possibility of severe weather diminishes significantly. By later tonight, storms themselves will diminish, but not until most of the metro receives some amount of rain (some local areas could see heavy rainfall). In addition, fairly gusty north to northwest wind will acommpany the passage of the outflow boundary and there will be plenty of lightning and thunder for the next few hours. By Saturday morning, a cold front will have moved through the region and we should be dry for most of the day. A hot but dry Father's Day is on tap.
