TORNADO WATCH for Davidson & Williamson Counties, effective until 10 AM.
Several tornadoes in the entire Watch box are possible, but the risk of EF2+ tornadoes is low.
The risk of severe winds (60+ mph) is moderate, but the risk of 70+ mph winds is low.
The risk of severe hail (1″) is moderate, but the risk of 2″+ hail is very low.
A “Watch” means conditions are favorable for the development of tornadoes and severe thunderstorms. Be on the lookout for threatening weather conditions and listen for any warnings.
A “Warning” means a tornado is occurring or imminent. A Warning urges immediate action. Ideally, you should move to a lowest level, interior room. Cars and trailers are NOT safe places to be in a tornado.
Not that warnings will NOT be posted to this website.
The Storm Prediction Center felt like the segment of the approaching storm line north of I-40 (ETA 4 AM to 5 AM) was unlikely to meet Tornado Watch criteria. That “northern” segment of the line is undergoing a general weakening trend. The segment of the line south of I-40 showed signs of intensification, and it’s moving into a storm-friendly environment. Both trends may change, so stay tuned.
The tornado threat will end upon passage of the squall line, which will be well before the expiration of the Watch at 10 AM.
