Record Today… Prepare for Spring Storms

Feeling a bit like summer today?  No wonder!  Nashville set a record high soaring to 87 degrees.  This is a new record for the date and for the winter.  The old record for March 15 was 82 from 2012.  It is also the warmest temperature record for the winter in Nashville.


This is a one day extreme as slightly cooler air will be here the rest of the week.  Tonight we could see a few showers overnight, but tomorrow will be partly cloudy. Again tomorrow night there is a slight chance of rain in the evening.  But Thursday, St. Patrick’s Day will be nice, highs near 70.  It’s the luck of the Irish this year!

Even though the weather is nice now, you know spring time storms are just around the corner.  To get you ready the 4WARN Weather Team is bringing back “Surviving the Storm” for it’s 8th year.  “Surviving the Storm” is a weather safety program.  The 4WARN Weather Team travels all across Middle Tennessee visiting communities and presenting their free multi-media program.

This year the spring series begins March 31 at Trousdale County High School.  April 7 the team travels to Gallatin at Vol State for the 10th anniversary of the 2006 Gallatin Tornado that claimed 7 lives.  A week later, the team heads to Clarksville at Salem United Methodist Church on April 14.  The spring tour ends in Nolensville on April 21 at the Historic School.  Check out the location addresses by click here.

Each show starts at 7pm and last about an hour.  The doors open at 6pm.  Bring your weather radio to be programmed before the show starts.

Not only will you learn about severe weather and what to do, you will also have a chance to win great prizes.  The first 50 people in the door will get a Snowbird goodie. We’ll also play games and give away door prizes at the end including a Midland Weather Radio.

The entire weather team will be there: Lisa Spencer, Dan Thomas, Paul Heggen and Nancy Van Camp.  Snowbird will also be there shaking his tail feathers. Before the show, you can meet and greet, have your picture made with the team and collect autographs.

At the end you’ll have a chance to ask questions.

Making sure you and other in the community are prepared for severe weather is very important to me.  If you’d like to find out more information about scheduling a speaker for your group or about our community program “Surviving the Storm”, leave a comment here or email me at
