BETTER WEATHER AFTER A DEVASTATING NIGHT

///
Comments are Off

After a violent night of weather across Tennessee things are looking much better for our election day. Partly sunny skies today through Wednesday with high temperatures in the low 60s and the low tonight in the upper 30s. Rain is expected again Wednesday night and Thursday but then dry weather from Friday through Sunday with a warming trend. High temperatures will climb from the 40s on Friday to 60° on Sunday. Last night and this morning was one you don’t forget for a long time as a meteorologist. Last evening we started tracking a supercell in Benton County in West Tennessee and it traveled all the way across Nashville and then Lebanon and then through the Cookeville area producing a damaging tornado along most of its path. As the supercell moved across North Cumberland County into Morgan County it weakened slightly but continued to produce lots of hail and wind damage. Radar was indicating that some of the debris was being carried up into the atmosphere almost 20,000 feet. Radar was also showing Winds of 140 miles per hour at times in the tornado as it moved between Nashville and Cookeville. It has been looking like this would be an active severe weather season and it is just getting started as tornado weather usually increases as we get into April. I have been in the office almost 24 hours straight now to keep you updated on this severe weather situation and I promise you I will always be here when there is any tornado threat so you can be prepared and stay safe and we will keep you updated on the latest when severe weather threatens. My blessings and best wishes go out to everyone affected in Middle Tennessee by this night of tornadoes. Also let’s not forget the emergency responders involved in search-and-rescue efforts across the area and the power companies with much work to do for days.
