The National Weather Service's Morristown weather forecast office places the tornado threat as "very low", but added in a weather briefing this morning that an isolated tornado can not be ruled out.

Isolated severe thunderstorms are possible late Thursday and on Friday, as a cold front approaches the northern Cumberland Plateau region. The primary threats will be wind gusts up to 70 miles per hour, large hail up to half-dollar-sized, and isolated flooding.

Expect the clouds to stick around most of the day Wednesday before a chance of rain returns Thursday and Friday, according to the National Weather Service. The high will be near 93 with a heat index as high as 106. Low around 70. Rainfall amounts between a half and three quarters of an inch are possible.

There is a 30 percent chance of precipitation Wednesday afternoon and evening, the weather service says. It will be partly sunny with a high of around 85 degrees.

Friday, it will be mostly sunny with a high near 85, the weather service said, and a northeast wind of 5 to 7 miles per hour.

Friday night, expect mostly clear skies with a low of 65, according to the weather service.

"It's a combination of temperatures in the 90's and high humidity values", said Gary Goggins, meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Birmingham.
