Stormy/Windy Weather Ahead
We will be under a Wind Advisory, beginning at noon, and the National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook throughout the rest of the day:
“A WIND ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FROM NOON TODAY TO MIDNIGHT TONIGHT FOR ALL OF MIDDLE TENNESSEE FOR SUSTAINED WINDS 20 TO 30 MPH… WITH GUSTS OF TO AROUND 40 MPH POSSIBLE. THERE IS A SLIGHT RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS FOR ALL OF MIDDLE TENNESSEE LATE THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING. DAMAGING WINDS…LARGE HAIL…AND EVEN ISOLATED TORNADOES WILL BE POSSIBLE. MORE INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET AT WEATHER.GOV OR BY LISTENING TO NOAA WEATHER RADIO.”
Other Nashville news stations are reporting that we are at increased risk of wind and hail damage later this evening. However, other news stations are reporting an increased risk of wind while downplaying other severe weather potential this afternoon. If other advisories/watches/warnings are issued, we’ll post them here.
Update, 2/23, 8:43PM: The Wind Advisory has expired and the threat of Hazardous Weather has apparently been downgraded:
“ISOLATED SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE TONIGHT…MAINLY EAST OF INTERSTATE 65. LOCALIZED DAMAGING WIND AND LARGE HAIL COULD OCCUR. AN ISOLATED TORNADO CANNOT BE RULED OUT.”
