Isolated Severe Storms Last Night, More Tonight?

This was issued at around 11:35 pm last night and they never did issue a watch, but they just outlooked this region as we were seeing some severe storms move through these regions. There was even a Tornado Warning issued for a cell over in Fentress and Overton Counties, luckily one never did produce and if it did it only hit rural areas.
  • There were a few severe reports from these storms. Close to Bethpage in Sumner County, a fireworks tent was blow upwards and caused a minor injury to the worker at that stand.
  • Also, over in Overton County, a few trees were down on power lines and caused few power outages in that county.
  • After those surprises last night, we could see some more isolated cells pop-up tonight in advance of another shortwave system that will push through here overnight. I put the chance at 20% for areas of Nashville northward and eastward. These storms will have the chance at damaging wind gusts and large hail to nickel size.
