...Severe Thunderstorms Expected This Afternoon through the Mid
Evening Hours Across Middle Tennessee...
...Isolated Tornadoes With A Strong Tornado or Two Also

A strong storm system will move from the southern plains into and
across Middle Tennessee this afternoon. Ahead of this frontal
system, as southerly winds pull warm, moist, and unstable air
across the mid state as the late morning into the afternoon hours
progress, some isolated strong to severe thunderstorms will
be possible. Also, as this frontal system moves across the mid
state this afternoon, strong to severe thunderstorms will
develop along and just ahead of the frontal boundary. Main
concerns with any severe thunderstorms that do develop will be
damaging straight line winds along with large hail. Isolated
tornadoes will also be possible, with one or two of these
potentially being strong, across the mid state region.

Presently, it is expected that the time window for greatest
potential for severe thunderstorm development will be between
12 PM - 3 PM CDT for locations across northwest Middle Tennessee.
For central portions of Middle Tennessee, including much of the
Nashville Metro Area, the best development window will be between
1 PM -5 PM CDT, impacting the afternoon rush hour traffic. For
locations just to the east, the greatest potential for severe
thunderstorm development will be between 3 PM - 7 PM CDT. For
locations near and across the Cumberland Plateau Region, the time
window is expected to be between 5 PM - 9 PM CDT.

Severe weather safety plans need to be in place before hand so
safety actions can be taken quickly if needed. Please stay tuned
