A Mesoscale Convective System (MCS) developed over Illinois and Indiana early on June 29, 2023, and traveled southward into Middle Tennessee by late morning and early afternoon. As this line of thunderstorms did so, they produced severe wind gusts with several reports of downed tress and power lines received. Across southwest Middle Tennessee, isolated thunderstorms quickly strengthened and produced up to baseball size hail across portions of Lawrence County. Unfortunately, this event did lead to one fatality with a 52-year-old woman in Maury County killed after a tree fell on her during a severe thunderstorm.

March 24, 2023

As a strong upper-level storm system moved into the Great Plains and warm, moist southerly flow increased across the southeast United States, an early spring severe weather threat was setting up over the area. As a cold front approached from the west, a line of thunderstorms developed along it and marched across Middle Tennessee. With an abundant amount of wind shear, the thunderstorms had no problem producing severe winds across the area. Numerous wind damage reports were received primarily for areas along and west of Interstate 65. These included downed trees and power poles along with structural damage with the most significant damage occurring in Lobelville.

March 21, 2017

A line of severe thunderstorms called a Mesoscale Convective System (MCS) moved across Middle Tennessee on Tuesday, March 21, 2017, impacting areas mainly south of Interstate 40. This MCS moved into Middle Tennessee around 230 PM CDT, and additional scattered thunderstorms also developed out ahead of the MCS. Numerous reports of large hail and damaging winds were received with these storms before all of the storms exited the area by early evening.||Due to high amounts of instability in the atmosphere and unusually steep lapse rates aloft, very large hail was reported in several areas. Some of the largest hail was reported in Lewisburg, where hail up to 2 inches in diameter covered the ground and caused significant damage to roofs and vehicles. Golf ball size hail was also reported in Waynesboro (Wayne County), with ping pong ball size hail in Hampshire (Maury County) and Summertown (Lawrence County).||Some of the worst wind damage occurred along a segment of the MCS called a bow echo, which is commonly associated with damaging winds. This bow echo moved from Williamson and Rutherford Counties across Cannon, Coffee, Warren, Van Buren, and Grundy Counties during the late afternoon hours. Based on damage reports, photos, and radar data, winds are estimated to have reached over 90 mph in parts of these counties. Damage included a roof blown off a school in Christiana (Rutherford County); numerous trees and power poles snapped, a tractor trailer blown over onto a car, and structural damage to a few homes in Murfreesboro (Rutherford County); structural damage to homes and barns being destroyed near the Iconium community (Cannon County); numerous trees falling on campers and RVs in Fall Creek Falls State Park (Van Buren County); and numerous trees, power lines, and power poles knocked down in Manchester (Coffee County).

December 23, 2015

An unusually powerful upper level trough moved across the eastern United States on December 23, 2015, spawning widespread severe weather from the Gulf Coast to the Great Lakes. Several tornadic supercell thunderstorms developed across northern Mississippi and western Tennessee, which then moved rapidly east-northeastward at up to 70 mph across Middle Tennessee during the evening hours on December 23. These storms produced 4 long-track tornadoes that caused 2 deaths and 7 reported injuries. Only 7 tornadoes had been previously recorded across Middle Tennessee in the month of December from the 1800s through 2014, easily making this the largest and worst December tornado outbreak in Middle Tennessee history.||In addition to the tornadoes, several reports of wind damage, large hail, and flash flooding were received. Some of the worst flash flooding occurred in Maury County, where 3 teenagers drowned in a submerged vehicle on Carters Creek Pike.

July 28, 2015

A small cluster of strong to severe thunderstorms moved southward out of Kentucky along the I-65 corridor during the afternoon hours on July 28.

The BNA ASOS at the Nashville International Airport measured a peak wind gust of 54 mph.
