Special Weather Statement

From the National Weather

Special Weather Statement
Statement as of 3:46 PM CST on February 26, 2011

....Severe weather Sunday night and Monday...

Another round of severe weather is expected across middle
Tennessee Sunday night and Monday. The Storm Prediction Center has
placed far western sections of the mid state under a moderate risk
for severe weather, with a slight risk of severe weather for the
rest of the mid state.

Increasingly warm and unstable air will help generate scattered
thunderstorms on Sunday. These are not expected to be severe. The
risk for severe weather will increase late Sunday night through
Monday morning as a strong low pressure system and cold front
approach the area. Numerous thunderstorms will move in from the
west during this period. Conditions will be favorable for
damaging winds...large hail and isolated tornadoes. Heavy
downpours will also accompany the storms.

The main time for severe weather will be from late Sunday night
through mid afternoon Monday. In addition to storms ahead of the front, a
line of thunderstorms with strong winds will likely accompany the
cold front passage. Dry and colder weather will move in for Monday

Now is a good time to review your severe weather safety rules.
Plan where you will go if severe weather or tornadoes approach
your location. Safety information is available on the internet at
