October tornadoes are rare

Posted: Updated:

The Nashville National Weather Service confirmed two EF-0 tornadoes from Monday afternoon's storm activity east of Nashville. They were the weakest of tornadoes with winds around 85mph, but some damage was done.

In Statesville in southeastern Wilson County, a mobile home was pushed off its foundation and several sheds were rolled.  Trees and power lines also suffered from the winds.

Near the Grant community in western Smith County several trees were downed.

These are the first October tornadoes on record for each of those counties.  The last time we had a twister in October in Middle Tennessee was in 2009 when an EF-1 hit Davidson and Robertson counties.

Now, we get back to normal fall weather... wild temperature swings and, perhaps, an early frost.  We'll update that forecast on News 2 at 10.
