Tornado Watch Cancelled; More Rain Possible Tonight

Tornado Watch Cancelled

This afternoon’s severe thunderstorm winds, radar-estimated between 60-70 MPH, took down trees and power lines from Franklin toward BNA and Hermitage.

There was no tornado.

Rain should continue this afternoon — with a break late in the afternoon — then we should see more rain tonight. The HRRR model sure thinks so:

HRRR simulated radar from Sunday 8 PM to Monday 3 AM

As the rain regenerates late tonight, we think there will be insufficient storm food to create any severe concerns. So, just expect some rain, and maybe a rumble of thunder or two.

Rain should end before sunrise Monday.

Cooler Week Ahead

The heat and humidity was swept away by the storm line we saw this afternoon. Check it out: 50°s in the morning, 70°s in the afternoon Monday and Tuesday.

Monday will be windy. NWS may issue another Wind Advisory to account for it.

Timing for rain is difficult to determine Wednesday and Wednesday night. Right now, there is little/no concern about severe weather.

Rain looks likely Thursday and may linger Friday, but as SPC says regarding severe weather potential: “Predictability Too Low.”

A quick peek at the weekend — looks terrific, cool mornings, afternoons in the 70°s, rain unlikely.
