US National Weather Service Nashville Tennessee Update
A TORNADO WATCH has been issued for the far southern counties of Middle Tennessee until 8 PM CDT. “This is a PARTICULARLY DANGEROUS SITUATION with potential for VIOLENT LONG TRACK TORNADOES. Additional watches are expected this afternoon and evening across Middle Tennessee.”
“As of now, we are between rounds of weather. The earlier showers and storms have obviously moved out of the area and we are left with some partial sunshine and relatively mild air. This is helping to destabilize the atmosphere for additional storms later on. At this time, the short-range models are showing storms moving northeastward into Middle Tennessee from northern Mississippi and Alabama after 3 p.m. and then spreading across the remainder of the mid state during the next several hours. So be on the lookout for an additional Tornado Watch for Middle Tennessee should one be forthcoming.” US National Weather Service Nashville Tennessee
