We Provide Severe and Winter Weather Information for only Davidson (Nashville) and Williamson Counties.
We think you should have more (and better) information than what you get on that crap app on your phone that shows you humorless, model-generated numbers and confusing clip art that’s no help at all when the weather turns severe or when the white death (snow) descends on the city.
Using fancy radar and model data, and dialed into the National Weather Service’s internal chat, we tweet out forecasts, watches, warnings, ETAs and commentary about hail, severe wind, lightning, tornadoes, snow, and other severe weather only for Davidson and Williamson Counties. We use this website to supplement our work on Twitter, which you can find @NashSevereWx on Twitter.
Yeah, But Who Exactly Are You?
We are not the robots that generate your crap app forecasts from a piece of software housed in Atlanta.
We are actual people. David, Will, and Andrew live and/or work in Williamson County and/or Davidson County. We are all married, all of us have kids, we have college degrees, and this is our hobby that turned into a thing, whatever this is.
Providing you weather information isn’t easy, but it is a joy, and at the risk of sounding cliche-cheesy (which David hates), it’s our passion. We are huuuuuge radar and tornado and wet bulb and convective available potential energy and warm nose and quasi linear convective system and social media nerds. We think we are also self-aware that we are nerds and we have made peace with that. Of the three of us, Will is the coolest, Andrew is the most naturally gifted, and David is tall.
If you want the whole story, there are articles out there on The Googles which David feels like are not cool to link to. Or, just hit us up on Twitter.
Trolls concerned about our lack of formal meteorology or geography degrees are invited to step into a time machine to watch Will and David accept the National Weather Association’s Walter J. Bennett Public Service Award at the NWA national conference in Norfolk, VA, in 2016, for this work with @NashSevereWx and #tSpotter. Our operation began through our relationship with NWS-Nashville, which began in 2011. We work accountable to NWS-Nashville, we undergo in-person radar and other mission-specific training at least three times a year, we attend all media meetings and workshops, and all our information is sourced. Our ultimate responsibility is to the audience which we take seriously. If you aren’t learning, you’re getting dumber, so we learn all the time.
Interns generate most web content. We’re in our 6th year of having interns from Mississippi State (and other universities’) meteorology programs. Former interns are today working in meteorology, either on-air, in academia, or at the NWS itself.
Good jokes come from Will (he signs his tweets ^wm), David (the usual tweeter), and Andrew (^al). Jokes that either aren’t funny or do not land are the responsibility of any intern, past or present.
Our weather information is serious, nerd-curated, distilled for easy consumption, and distributed to you for free thanks to over 300 Patreon donors.
