Windy Friday with Storms Late

Batten down the hatches and be prepared for winds to really pick up from the south. We expect sustained winds of 20-30 mph today with gusts to 40 mph. This is out ahead of a strong cold front that is bearing down on middle Tennessee. Highs are expected to be around 70°.

We expect storms to rumble later in the afternoon and hope to have a good lunch update.

A little weather history...

Did you know that...
Dubbed "The Black Blizzard", the most notorious dust storm of the dust bowl era struck the Plains on this date in 1935. Clouds of dust were visible from Atlantic Ocean shipping lanes and huge, black dust clouds were seen over Washington, D.C. The fine dust was created by farming techniques of the era and was easily made airborne by wind. By the fall of 1938, rain would bring an end to the Dust Bowl era.
