Friday, March 2, 2012 5:06 am
A significant severe weather outbreak will be possible across middle Tennessee today and during the evening hours tonight.
A moderate risk of severe thunderstorms across all of middle Tennessee today and tonight.
Main threats will be damaging winds... large hail... and possibly strong long tracked tornadoes.
Breaks in cloud coverage today will allow for daytime heating to aid with atmospheric instability and lift. Additional instability and lift will be provided by the approaching strong cold front. Thus... all the ingredients needed for convective development on a large scale will be in place... moisture... instability... and lift. The best overall time for severe weather potential across the mid state will be from noon in western locations to mid evening in eastern locations.
