Breaking News- Tornado Warning Issued In Parts Of Middle Tennessee

Channel 5 News Posted: Feb 27, 2011 5:03 PM CST NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The National Weather Service has issued a tornado warning for parts of Montgomery, Cheatham, Dickson and Houston Counties. The warning was issued at 4:27 p.m. Sunday, and was set to expire at 5:15 p.m. Locations under threat of tornado include Ashland City, Vanleer, Slayden and Charlotte. The NWS said Doppler radar indicated a severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado. The storm cell was located about 8 miles north of McEwen, and moving east at approximately 50-60 miles an hour. The storm cell was expected to track over northern Davidson County toward Hendersonville by 6 p.m. NewsChannel 5 meteorologist Charlie Neese said atmospheric conditions were ripe for tornadoes Sunday afternoon and into Monday morning. The greatest chance for severe weather has been forecast from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. Neese said the threat of tornadoes was greater than that of severe weather that moved through the area late Thursday night. That storm produced two confirmed F-2 tornado touchdowns in the Percy Priest area of Davidson County and in Lebanon.
