Yesterday's Storm Reports 8-6-08; Cooler August Weather Ahead!

Here's the storm reports that where received last night by the NWS office in Nashville (OHX) and what kind of damage was witnessed.

  • Robertson County (Cooperstown): Penny Size hail reported in Cooperstown. This is the area where the storms popped-up and they keep intensifying as they moved eastward.

  • Wilson County (Mt. Juliet): Dime to Penny Size hail reported by Emergency Management.

  • Sumner County (White House): Small trees down and limbs from bigger trees down. Loss of Commercial power reported.

  • Wilson County (Lebanon): Trees down near HWY 231 and Cedar Grove Road.

  • Trousdale County (Hartsville): Large tree limbs down at HWY 10 near HWY 25.

  • Macon County (Lafayette): Tree down.

  • Jackson County (Gainesboro): Trees and power lines down.

  • Putnam County (Cookeville): Trees and power lines down in Cookeville. You can read more of Cookeville's weather reports by going to Mike's blog at

I would expect that we could hear of more reports coming in later on during the morning, because since these storms hit during the overnight hours, people could see if any of their trees or if any other damage in the neighborhood was caused by the storms blowing through.

As the front passes over Middle TN today, then temperatures look to be held down into the mid to upper 80's for most folks. The humidity will also decline and it won't feel like a typical August day for us. The rain and storm chances enter the big picture this afternoon (can't rule out an isolated shower/t'shower for the western half of Middle TN for this morning due to showers and t'showers already forming in West TN around Memphis). The severe weather looks to stay mainly south of us today, but areas on the AL/TN state line need to keep alert to any warnings or significant weather alerts that may be issued today. The biggest threat with the storms that may turn severe, will be damaging wind gust and possibly a wet microburst or two.
