...A MODERATE RISK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS MIDDLE TENNESSEE 
FOR TODAY...
...MAIN THREAT WILL BE DAMAGING WINDS...BUT ISOLATED TORNADOES
WILL BE POSSIBLE...

A STRONG COLD FRONT WILL MOVE THROUGH THE MID STATE LATE THIS
AFTERNOON. IN ADVANCE OF THIS FEATURE...THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED 
TO DEVELOP. SOME OF THESE THUNDERSTORMS WILL LIKELY BE SEVERE...WITH 
THE MAIN THREAT BEING DAMAGING WINDS...BUT THERE WILL ALSO BE THE 
POTENTIAL FOR ISOLATED TORNADOES. THE MOST FAVORABLE TIME FOR THE 
SEVERE WEATHER WILL BE FROM LATE MORNING AND THROUGH THIS AFTERNOON. 
THE SEVERE WEATHER COULD LAST UNTIL EARLY EVENING ACROSS THE 
CUMBERLAND PLATEAU REGION.

PLEASE BE SURE THAT YOUR SEVERE WEATHER SAFETY PLANS ARE IN PLACE
FOR BOTH YOUR RESIDENCE AND BUSINESS. IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY DONE
SO...IT WOULD BE A GOOD TIME TO PURCHASE A NOAA WEATHER RADIO AND
HAVE IT TUNED TO THE TRANSMITTER THAT SERVES YOUR PARTICULAR
LOCATION. INFORMATION ABOUT NOAA WEATHER RADIO TRANSMITTERS AND
THE LOCATION THAT THEY SERVE IN MIDDLE TENNESSEE CAN BE FOUND ON
THE NASHVILLE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WEB PAGE...AT
