Alberto departs Middle TN after flooding rains and gusty winds

Alberto has come and gone across Middle TN.

What’s interesting about Alberto is it looked more “tropical” when it was over us than when it was over the Gulf of Mexico.
Here’s what the storm looked like from our 4Warn Live Doppler Radar near 10PM Tuesday.
What’s even more remarkable is that Alberto is still so well defined after traveling 600 miles since landfall. Truly an incredible storm.
Here’s the storm as it passed by Indianapolis at 1PM Wednesday.
It’s very unusually to see a tropical system in our backyards during the month of May.
The threat was always the same for us when the system came through – gusty winds and rain – we got quite a bit of both.
Winds speeds gusted up to around 40 to 50 mph near the center of Alberto when it came through. There were widespread reports of tree limbs knocking down power lines causing power outages across Hickman and Dickson Counties.

Those counties also took the lion’s share of the rain. Our radar indicated between 2-4 inches of rain in areas west of Interstate 65.
You can see most areas east of I-65 received next to nothing rainfall-wise.
The lighter, blue shaded areas reported less than 0.25″ of rain.
Did you see damage where you were?
