...A STRONG THUNDERSTORM WILL AFFECT CENTRAL NASH AND SOUTHEASTERN
FRANKLIN COUNTIES UNTIL 600 PM EDT...

At 525 PM EDT, Doppler radar was tracking a strong thunderstorm 8
miles northwest of Nashville, moving east at 10 mph.

Wind gusts up to 40 mph will be possible with this storm.

Heavy rain and minor flooding and deadly cloud to ground lightning
will also be possible with this storm.

Locations impacted include...
Rocky Mount, Nashville, Dortches, Bunn, Red Oak, Spring Hope,
Castalia and Tar River Reservoir.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Seek shelter in a nearby building or vehicle. Wind gusts as high as
40 mph are capable of knocking down tree limbs and blowing around
trash cans, potted plants, lawn furniture and other light outdoor
objects.

Locally heavy rain will quickly reduce visibility and result in
ponding of water on roadways, standing water in low lying areas, and
minor flooding of creeks, streams, and areas of poor drainage.
Drivers are urged to slow down and use extra caution to avoid
hydroplaning, especially in urban areas where prolonged heavy rain
can quickly lead to flooding.
