I wonder if it was the supercell that passed over me in wilson county. No warning until it passed but it  was a strong storm for sure.
It was not and that severe storm yesterday was NOT a supercell.

I've seen two separate videos taking from BNA's cell waiting lot of a potentially very weak, brief tornado just east of the airport earlier this afternoon.

OHX did a radar analysis and found verryyyy little evidence of a tornado.  There was one pixel that was "interesting".  It was more like a gustnado.  Pretty neat, though.

This person from the SPC said it was thats the only reason I called it that. I didnt think it was until I read that post. http://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/md/md0828.html

DISCUSSION...Convection has increased over Middle Tennessee in the
   past hour or so, with one supercell exhibiting increasing rotation
   and attendant hail/wind/tornado threat over Trousdale and Smith
   Counties.

Meh, I call it marginal at best because it just didn't exhibit strong characteristics I'd consider for supercell designation. The storm actually cycled out by the time it hit the KY border.

Yeah it went from nothing to a pretty decent storm right over me then it fell apart after that and ever storm that way was just a rain storm for the most part. The watch was crazy but that storm I guess had them worried others would blow up like it did.

Look at the bottom 3 pictures from the "tornado". None of the trees have leaves on them? That picture doesn't seem legit.. I mean the top one all the trees are green but the 3 bottom no leaves at all on no tree just seems like a winter time picture not one taken a few days ago.

The three photos from the EF0 Smith County Tornado? They look green and trees fully leafed to me. I'm not sure what you're looking at.

Your right now. But earlier it wasn't i should of took a screen shot I guess. They either fixed it or something but them are not the 3 pics they had.
Also they had a picture of a down draft in Nashville and tornado in Hohenwald. So i guess they might of uploaded an older storm picture? Idk. Either way its fixed now.

After some digging i found 1 of the pics they had. It was from this tornado back in March.

Here is the actual NWS link this minus the first picture was what was shown before they fixed it.

It has the 3 bottom pictures i was talking about and the 2 storm radars that i mentioned as well.

I've never seen this map with so little color.  Drought is at a record minimum across the U.S since the drought monitor was started.  Will it also keep extreme heat at a minimum this summer??   ::fingerscrossed::
