If you are looking for a White Christmas, it isn't happening in Middle Tennessee.

Meteorologist John Cohen with the National Weather Service office in Donelson said folks can expect highs in the upper 60s this Friday, Christmas Day.

They can also expect a few thunderstorms. "We do have a warm front lifting north that day," he said. "Showers and thunderstorms are likely again, but it's nothing like what we expect to see Wednesday night."

On Wednesday, the NWS was calling for severe weather beginning at 4 p.m.

At 10 a.m. on Wednesday morning, Cohen said the severe storms were still in central Arkansas. "As it comes across we could see straight line damaging winds and large hail and a few tornados," he said.

Christmas Eve Day - Thursday, Dec. 24 was looking very mild, with highs in the lower 70s and a 30 percent chance of rain in the morning.

Cohen said the temperature on Christmas Eve is close to record warmth for the date.

"We are on track to be the second warmest December in the area on record. The warmest December was 1889."
