Overnight Storms To Bring 60+ Winds, Possible Hail, Tornadoes, Localized Heavy Rainfall

Severe storms are expected to strengthen through the evening into the overnight hours, mainly west of I-65 and south of I-40, according to the US National Weather Service Nashville Tennessee.

“Some uncertainties exist around how much energy we’ll have in place to fuel severe storms. The activity ongoing to our southwest could actually limit our severe threat by robbing us of the energy we’d need for severe storms to develop. Despite the questionable energy there is still the threat of straight-line winds with storms that develop ahead of a cold front this evening. There’s also a low threat of an isolated tornado, mainly for those along the Tennessee/Alabama state line.

AFTERNOON TIMING:

As for timing, we could see a stray severe storm in our southwest this afternoon, but the main timing for any severe activity will be late this evening as the frontal boundary approaches. As storms move east of I-65, they’re expected to quickly weaken.

• Flashlight and extra batteries.
• Battery-powered NOAA Weather Radio and portable radio to receive emergency information. These may be your only links to the outside.
• Extra food and water. High-energy food, such as dried fruit or candy, and food requiring no cooking or refrigeration is best.
• Extra medicine and baby items.
• First-aid supplies.
• Have proper ventilation.
• Fire extinguisher and smoke detector.
