A strong cold front will sweep across Middle Tennessee Tuesday evening. Severe storms are possible late Tuesday afternoon and evening. The best chance for severe weather will occur west of I-65. The primary threat is damaging straight-line winds. Large hail and isolated tornadoes are also possible.

The gusty south to southwest winds expected on Tuesday have prompted the National Weather Service to issue a Wind Advisory which is in effect from 10 AM to 10 PM CDT Tuesday. Sustained winds from 15 to 25 mph, with gusts as high as 35 to 45 mph at times are expected. A few trees, tree limbs, or power lines could get blown down. A Wind Advisory means that winds over 40 mph are expected. Winds this strong may blow down a few trees or tree limbs and cause isolated power outages. Driving may also become difficult… especially for high profile vehicles. Use extra caution.
