Nashville, Tenn. Although there are already ongoing showers & t’showers, the ETAs for a squall line that may include severe weather is during the afternoon and early evening hours. Damaging winds and hail are the biggest threat, BUT an isolated tornado can’t be ruled out, hence the tornado watch.
The time of arrival for the Nashville area is generally in the 4-6pm time period, but a few ongoing storms ahead of that squall line could be severe, as well.
The Storm Prediction Center has “upped” its tornado probability from 5% to now 10% for the northern parts of Middle TN, including Nashville.
58 mph winds or higher, and hail 1″ or larger are both in the 30% category (chance within 25 miles of a point).
Rush hour commuters should be aware that this weather may affect drive time this afternoon and evening.
AND, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to park the car under a carport, in a garage, or in a protected area due the hail threat.
