Many are wondering about the timing of severe storms and what to expect in Middle Tennessee. Most everyone agrees we will be paying close attention from noon to 5 or 6 for our reading area. There has been a slight elevation in tornado chances this afternoon. Most will see a “break” which will allow the atmosphere to recharge so to speak. Flash flooding remains a strong possibility and hail could be seen in some areas.
We will update throughout the day as we expect watches to be issued around mid-day. For warnings follow us on Facebook and Twitter for your particular county, which can be found below.
