Today’s been active for weather in many regards!
First, we had a cluster of severe thunderstorms that roared through Nashville & Brentwood, and pushed farther south toward the TN/AL line.
70-80 trees were blown down in the Crieve Hall/Oak Hill area. The roof was partially blown off a preschool in Brentwood. Meanwhile, nickel size hail fell near Oak Hill and in Green Hills.
The picture below shows a tree knocked over on Valley Road around West End.
This is a radar image recap of the storm as it pass southward, at various times this afternoon.
Since then, all storms in the Mid State have dissipated.
Then, there are hurricanes Jose & Maria! Maria’s the one we’re concerned about. It’s closing in on St. Croix. The storm, now with maximum sustained wind at 175mph, will pass very close to that island overnight. Puerto Rico will suffer a direct hit tomorrow. 10ft storm surge, wind gusts nearing 200mph, 1-2 feet of rain, and massive land slides are all likely.
Hurricane Jose isn’t nearly as strong. It’s lingering off the coast of the northeastern United States tonight and will be for a while to come.
Tomorrow, expect a mix of clouds and sunshine with just a 20% chance for an isolated shower or storm after midday here in Middle Tennessee. While many areas had slightly cooler weather today due to more clouds and rain, highs will be back near 90 for most of us tomorrow.
Join me on News 4 at 10pm for much more on our weather for the next week, and a new projection of where both Maria & Jose are headed.
