MM’s Severe Wx Concerns 

MM’s Winter Wx Concerns  

On This Day in Wx History

2015- A rare late December tornado outbreak strikes the Tennessee and Ohio Valleys. Four strong tornadoes hit Middle Tennessee, including an EF2 tornado that kills 2 people in Perry County, and an EF3 tornado that tracks nearly 50 miles across Wayne, Lawrence, Lewis, and Maury Counties.

1998- Ice storm strikes much of northern Middle Tennessee and the Cumberland Plateau. Damage in some areas eclipses that from the 1994 ice storm. Warren and Coffee Counties are the hardest hit. Eighty percent of Coffee County residents are without electricity.
