The Storm Prediction Center has highlighted our area in a discussion (blue circled area on map below), stating that numerous t-storms are expected this afternoon. Some of those storms could be severe, with damaging straight-line winds. We’re already seeing scattered t-storms across Middle TN and some of those are severe. There’s no line to track, just scattered pop-up storms around the region.
The Storm Prediction Center does not anticipate issuing a watch, though they have not completely ruled that out. Be safe if you’re out and about and try to dodge these storms as they develop.
The current radar shows numerous storms across the state, with the closest one being in eastern Cumberland County. Storms are moving very slowly but tend to drift to the south.
