A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect until 10 PM tonight.

A “watch” means conditions are favorable for the development of severe thunderstorms, which carry 1″ hail and/or 58 mph winds.

A “warning” means a severe thunderstorm is imminent or occurring in the warned area, which is defined by those locations inside the severe warning polygon/box/shape/#geometry!

Note that we are on the far Western edge of the Watch Box area. The HRRR weather model thinks storms will develop to the East of us, and continue moving SE, so that’s good news for us. We may not see anything else severe today, but be on the lookout for additional information.

We will post new information to Twitter @NashSevereWx. No warnings will be posted to this site. You are encouraged to consult multiple reliable sources of weather information.
