Well, that was quite the afternoon…numerous severe thunderstorm warnings, about a half-dozen tornado warnings, and multiple wind damage reports. The worst of it so far is from a likely tornado that touched down near Percy Priest Lake and tracked through far northern Rutherford county and southwestern Wilson county. The damage reports are still coming in as I type this at 6:45pm — I’ll have an updated list on News 4 at 10pm, and we’ll have a detailed report from Wilson and Rutherford counties as well.
But the good news is, the severe threat is out of here! As showers and thunderstorms depart the Midstate this evening, colder air has come crashing into the area, with temperatures dropping to the mid 30s by early Sunday morning:
The Wind Advisory continues until midnight:
A mostly calm week in store for us as we get closer to Thanksgiving, with near-normal temperatures and just a very slight shower chance Tuesday, and again on Saturday:
I wouldn’t worry about either rain chance at this point.
