Original story: Severe thunderstorms such as harmful winds, large hail and an isolated tornado are possible Wednesday evening in Middle Tennessee.

A large part of the region was put under a tornado clock around 7 p.m. that should last until 2 a.m.

The storms are expected to hit the region between 10:00 PM and 10:00 PM. and 4 a.m., according to the National Weather Service in Nashville.

Several waves of storm fronts hit Middle Tennessee on Wednesday afternoon.

The 22 counties under tornado observation included: Davidson, Cheatham, Dickson, Maury, Montgomery, Robertson, Rutherford, Sumner, Williamson and Wilson.

The counties of Giles, Houston, Humphreys, Lawrence, Lewis, Macon, Perry, Smith, Stewart, Trousdale and Wayne were also included.

Trained weather watchers reported a severe thunderstorm over Mount Juliet at 4:45 p.m. in an area about 12 miles east of Nashville that was moving 40 km / h northeast, the NWS reported.

Reports showed that half an inch of hail was possible, and residents were encouraged to seek shelter.

Severe thunderstorm warning

At around 4:00 p.m., a severe thunderstorm warning was issued for areas near Waynesboro, West Tennessee, when the storm hit the state. Parts of the counties of Lewis, Wayne and Lawrence have been included in the warning.

Winds between 60-75 miles per hour, hail of golf ball size and an isolated tornado are possible.

“Please treat severe thunderstorm warnings in the same way as a tornado warning. Winds that blow in a straight line compared to those that rotate in a circle at a speed of 100 km / h or more can cause the same type of damage “said the NWS.

Even though the threat of a tornado is included in the forecast, the composition of the line means the threat remains isolated, the NWS said. Even if the system contains rain, the risk of flooding is low.

“The entire line should depart from Middle Tennessee tomorrow morning before sunrise. Tomorrow the winds will come from the southwest and the temperatures should feel much cooler,” said the NWS.

Storms are possible again on Saturday and Sunday.

Residents are asked to find several ways to receive warnings, including a warning on a cell phone, a programmed NOAA weather radio, or a local television and radio that is on. Tornado sirens can be heard in a house, but are designed as an outside warning system and may not be the best warning to warn a sleeping household.
