3:00 pm Friday Wx Update

WHAT: Strong (severe?) storms

WHEN: 3:00 – 5:00 pm

A line of storms is making its way across Middle TN at this hour. This is in association with the remnants of Hurricane Laura. The line is responsible for the tornado watch that was issued until 7:00. Once this line moves through, the tornado threat will end.

The good news is that this is a very low-end threat. In fact, there have been few warnings with this line and I haven’t seen any reports of damage east of Nashville. That is certainly good news.

My severe weather concern has declined a bit. Moving in the right direction now, right?

So, just be weather aware as this line pushes through. I suspect the tornado watch will be ended early. If any storm does produce a tornado it will be weak and short-lived.

Showers and thundershowers ahead of the line are likely help stabilize our atmosphere somewhat, as well. That is also good news.

The radar image below is from 2:45. I highlighted the borders of Cumberland, Fentress, White, Overton, Putnam, and White Counties for better viewing. The line is currently approaching the western edge of the plateau. It should arrive in Jamestown and Crossville between 4-5:00. I’ll keep an eye on things! Just be weather aware as the line pushes through.
