Hazardous Weather Outlook National Weather Service Nashville TN 348 AM CST Thu Feb 17 2022 TNZ005>011-023>034-056>066-075-077>080-093>095-181130- Stewart-Montgomery-Robertson-Sumner-Macon-Clay-Pickett-Houston- Humphreys-Dickson-Cheatham-Davidson-Wilson-Trousdale-Smith-Jackson- Putnam-Overton-Fentress-Perry-Hickman-Lewis-Williamson-Maury- Marshall-Rutherford-Cannon-De Kalb-White-Cumberland-Bedford-Coffee- Warren-Grundy-Van Buren-Wayne-Lawrence-Giles- 348 AM CST Thu Feb 17 2022 This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for Middle Tennessee. .DAY ONE...Today and tonight. Severe weather event expected today. Severe storms are likely to develop in the afternoon and early evening. These storms may produce either straight-lined winds and/or spinup tornadoes. Additionally, gradient winds today are likely to gust to around 45mph at times. .DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday. Heavy rainfall will be possible Monday through Wednesday at times. .SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT... Spotter activation may be needed. Please relay any information about observed severe weather to the NWS while following all local, state, and CDC guidelines.
The primary threat for supercells in the warm sector may be delayed until mid afternoon across the Mid South, with broken bands of storms/embedded supercells along and ahead of the front spreading eastward into AL/Middle TN this evening. Despite the rather modest buoyancy and lapse rates expected, very strong low-level shear (curved hodographs with 300-500 m2/s2 0-1 km SRH) and effective bulk shear of 50-60 kt will favor supercells, and a storm or two could produce a strong tornado (in addition to damaging winds) this afternoon into this evening across northeast MS/northwest AL and adjacent areas of TN.
