The Storm Prediction Center has just issued a severe thunderstorm watch for the northern half of Middle Tennessee until 8:00 pm this evening. While this does not include Cumberland County, I would just go ahead and assume it does, especially since our neighbors to the west and north are included.
The severe thunderstorm watch is shown below. These watches extend north to Pennsylvania. An active front, for sure!
Current radar shows showers and thunderstorms developing across the region. One step outside and you can feel the heat and humidity that will fuel our storms today!
The weather radio has been having some issues this morning. I contacted the NWS in Nashville and they have been working on the issue. Mine seems to be fine now. This just stresses the point that you should have multiple ways to get warnings!
