Another Round of Severe Weather Today

Here's the SPC's outlook for us today. The second map shows the wind possibility and areas and places from I-40 northward, have the best chance at seeing the severe weather, but all of the Mid. State has a chance. We could see two rounds of severe weather today. The first will come by the afternoon pop-up storms, and the other round will be what is associated with the actually front pushing through here tonight. The high's today will once again reach the mid to upper 90's with the Heat Index's rising over the 100ยบ mark.

*Yesterday's Middle TN Storm Reports (All Found at the SPC website)
  • Smith County, TN (Carthage): Nickel Size Hail reported

  • Clay County, TN (Celina): Trees Blown Down in Moss Community and Trees Blown Down Near Intersection of HWY 85 and Turkey Creek HWY

*Dolly: Tropical Storm Dolly has increased her winds too 60 mph and will continue to strengthen as she moves up through the Gulf of Mexico's warm waters. Stormpulse.com has Dolly hitting the southern tip of TX at Cat. 1 strength with winds up to 85 mph and coming within 14 miles west of a Brownsville, TX; direct hit.

Here's today's forecasted high's and storm chances for later this afternoon too.

Nashville: mid to upper 90's; 30% chance
Clarksville: mid 90's; 40% chance
Cookeville: low to mid 90's; 30% chance
