Calm After the Storm


Wow yesterday was a clear sign that spring is on the door step. The National Weather Service spent the day wrapping up their storm damage survey for today. They found evidence of two additional tornadoes in Putman County, one near Baxter and the other near Monterey.  That brings the tornado total to 5.  Each has been classified as an EF-1 tornado.  Three tornadoes were confirmed yesterday: one in Davidson County near LaVergne, one in Wilson County near Watertown and another one in Williamson County that began near Franklin.

In addition the NWS team found evidence of straight-line wind damage near Waverly in Humphreys County, Charlotte in Dickson County, southern, Smith County and near Tullahoma and Manchester in Coffee County.


The NWS will conduct additional surveys tomorrow.  They have new information that there may have been a tornado in Smith County too. Busy folks at the NWS, I appreciate all they do.

Now let’s change gears to the weekend weather.  No doubt a very different air mass has moved in.  Today in Nashville it reached 55, with plenty of sunshine. A weak disturbance comes by tonight and reinforces the cold air.  We will see some morning lows near freezing and for some folks in the northeast Midstate and Kentucky, there could be a few snowflakes.Here’s the latest Futurecast.

As you can see most of us won’t see this.  In the areas that do, most still won’t see it because they’ll be asleep.

The rest of the weekend, sunshine dominates and the temperatures will be on the rise.It will be a weekend for outdoor fun!  Enjoy! The Nashville Lawn and Garden Show will be going on at the Fairgrounds.  This weather will get you in the mood for planting.


I’ll have an update on Channel 4 News at 10pm.
