Nashville, TN – Severe weather is expected this afternoon for Nashville and surrounding areas, with strong to severe storms expected throughout the day.

According to the National Weather Service in Nashville, the storms are forecasted to bring damaging winds of 40-60 mph, hail, and very heavy rain that could lead to localized flash flooding. The severe weather is anticipated to begin at 11 AM and continue through 8 PM. These conditions follow similar weather patterns observed earlier this week, emphasizing the need for heightened awareness and preparedness.

Primary threats include damaging winds capable of downing trees and power lines, potentially causing power outages. Hail is also a significant concern, as it can damage vehicles, roofs, and crops. The heavy rain may result in flash flooding, especially in low-lying areas and places with poor drainage.

Residents are urged to stay informed by monitoring local weather reports and alerts. It’s crucial to have multiple methods of receiving warning information, such as weather radios, mobile alerts, and local news updates. In the event of severe weather, seek shelter in a sturdy building, away from windows, and avoid travel if possible.
