Afternoon/Evening Storms To Bring Potential Flash Flooding, Hail & Tornadoes
ROBERTSON COUNTY TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – According to the US National Weather Service Nashville Tennessee, severe storms are rolling through middle Tennessee this afternoon.
“We’re expecting the main round of strong to severe thunderstorms to move across Middle Tennessee this afternoon and evening, roughly between 1pm and 9pm.
These storms will potentially contain a few tornadoes and damaging straight line winds, along with hail and localized flooding.
Please stay weather aware later today in case warnings are issued for your area!”
Go ahead now and review your safety plans and also make sure that you have more than one way to receive your warning(s), especially since severe storms are expected to occur at night or during the early morning.”
“IMPORTANT: Do NOT think if your area isn’t highlighted that you’re in the clear. This is where the *best* chances for severe weather to occur are located.
Take the time to make sure the batteries are fresh in your NOAA Weather Radio and tomorrow evening, make sure your cell phone is charged. Remember, we want you to have multiple ways to get warnings.
BE PREPARED: Before the Storm Strikes. (A message from Weather.gov)
