Good evening, everyone. I’m back from Nashville and all I can say is….what a difference! It was so hot and humid in Nashville. I get out of the car here on the plateau and the wind is almost cool, especially compared to Nashville. I say all this to remind you that the forecast is on track for a weakening line of storms to make its way across Middle Tennessee this evening. As storms hit our drier and cooler air, they are sure to weaken.
The line is now moving into the western sections of Nashville. The radar below shows that line. I circled Cumberland County. This is the line we’ll track eastward this evening. The estimated arrival time is around 10:30.
There are currently no watches in effect and none are planned for now. I wouldn’t be surprised to see us get a watch but I doubt it would be a tornado watch. This line hasn’t produced any tornado warnings for some time. That’s a good sign! Nevertheless, we’ll need to be weather-aware as this line approaches. Damaging straight-line winds will be the main threat.
I’ll update again at 9:00, or as needed.
