Does Winchester TN Weather have Tornados?

Does Winchester TN Weather have Freezing Rain?

Winchester TN weather does bring freezing rain unfortunately.  Freezing rain is when cold raindrops fall from the sky, then immediately freeze on anything that they land on. This could be a car, the road, electrical poles, trees, and anything else.  This brings dangers for obvious reasons when it lands on roads making them as slick as an ice rink -- and it becomes easy to lose control, stop, turn and pretty much anything else.  It is often best to not drive during freezing rain.

If you leave your car outside and they are calling for freezing rain, make sure to cover your windshield with something and lift up your wipers.  This dramatically helps with ice removal.  And never pour hot water on your windshield when it is cold, as it will likely shatter.

Preparing For Severe Weather in Winchester TN

Most of us have lived in Tennessee for a while.  And we're aware of the Winchester TN Weather and what it could bring.  For those of you who are newer here are a few tidbits to consider (this data taken from Ready.gov)

  • Notifications: 

    • Make sure you two ways to get information about severe weather.  Having a weather radio along with either watching the news or seeing things online is helpful.  Also a wake-me-up application is helpful as well such as StormWatch.

  • Tornado Watch vs Warning:  

    • Know the difference between a Tornado Watch vs Tornado Warning.  A Tornado Warning means immediately take shelter since a Tornado was either reported or indicated on weather radar.  A Tornado Watch means conditions are favorable for weather that can create tornados (severe storms).

  • If There is a Tornado Warning 

    • Immediately go to a safe shelter, such as a safe room, basement, storm cellar or a small interior room on the lowest level of a sturdy building.  Stay away from windows, doors, outside walls. 

    • Use your arms to protect your head and neck.

  • Preparing for Severe Weather (and a tornado)

    • Make sure you have shoes, money, cell phone charger and cell phone by your safe shelter area.  Shoes are important as there will be sharp objects on the ground after a tornado hits.

    • Know your area's tornado risk

    • Be aware of incoming weather, and the forecasts.  (pay attention to weather reports)
