Wind Advisory until midnight

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect until 7pm.  A Wind Advisory is in effect until midnight for all of Middle Tennessee and southern Kentucky.

Winds will run 20-30 mph with possible gusts to 45 mph today.

In addition, a fast moving line of thunderstorms will sweep across the mid-state late this afternoon that could produce gusty, damaging winds in a few spots.

Winds ahead of the storms could also possibly bring down a few tree limbs and power lines.

Although the tornado threat is low, it is not zero, so there could be a short lived tornado in a few of the stronger storms embedded in the squall line.

ETA for the storm line is roughly in the four o’clock hour for Nashville, although the time could vary a little.

Clarksville could see the storms during roughly the 3 o’clock hour, and Murfreesboro during the 5pm time period.
