We are National Weather Service (Nashville) SKYWARN Social Media Coordinators. This means we coordinate and relay – in real time – your severe & winter weather reports tweeted with the hashtag #tSpotter.

If you see: TORNADO, FUNNEL CLOUD, FLOODING, HAIL, STRUCTURAL DAMAGE, TREES OR POWER LINES DOWN and/or SNOW/FLURRIES, let the NWS know ASAP by tweeting your report with the hashtag #tSpotter. Tweets with photos and specific locations (geotagged) are best. Your reports assist the NWS in issuing severe weather warnings and advisories. Here’s our oldest example of that:

Send in your reports! They are valuable. They improve the forecast. They assist in warning decisions. They may even save someone’s life. Your report is the eyes of the NWS.
