Stormy Monday, April 4th, 2011

Strong storms roared across middle Tennessee leaving quite a trail of destruction. The "Preliminary Storm Reports" list is one of the longer ones I've seen in quite some time.

At least 36 reports in middle TN alone of damaging winds, possible tornadoes, funnel clouds, and hail this afternoon.

Here in Cookeville, a funnel cloud with debris in the air was reported in Algood by a trained storm spotter. Also, damage was reported at Prescott Hall on the campus of Tennessee Tech along with the old Prescott Middle School on 10th street just off the campus of the university.

  • On my personal weather station, I had a 46 mph wind gust at 3:22 pm. 

  • We've recorded 1.27" in rainfall during the last 3 hours. 

  • The barometric pressure went down to 29.48" and is starting to rise

We'll have much, much more on this in the coming days.
