Was this event worthy of a Tornado watch? Not being rude just asking.

Not in my opinion.   The SPC seems to be erring on the side of caution.

They even knew it wasn't. The post about the watch said isolated severe storms and possibility of tornadoes. The line itself was pretty weak as well.

Mostly tree damage here. There was one big tree on a house and car. Other than that lots of rain . Exactly 4 inches. Got a buddy who lives right on Current River and he is cut off from getting anywhere. The Current and White Rivers have broke all time high records and are still rising. Bad situation for a large area.

There were 2 wind-related fatalities today in Middle TN. Not sure if the one in the Nashville area was a thunderstorm or non-thunderstorm wind event. Although the event was pretty low-end in relation to other QLCS or other severe events it was still enough to be deadly. We don't always need long tracked supercells to make for a tragic day/night.

Edit: The other fatality was in the Fayetteville area (Lincoln County).

Not even the amounts of heavy rain that was expected.  The severe thunderstorm warning was as pitiful one as I have ever been under.

Go PREDS!!!!

I think the watch was in response to the TOR warned storms coming out of N AL at the time.  I honestly didn't think our atmosphere was as conducive to severe weather as the SPC thought it was but I'm just me.

Ended up with some marble sized hail here during the Saturday night storms, but thats about it.  The heavy rain threat here didn't seem to materialize like it did further west.  Still nice to have something to follow. Next!

Edit:  Screen shot I grabbed of the incoming hail producing cell:
