NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A cold front has pushed through Middle Tennessee, dumping up to 2 inches of rain on the area but apparently causing little property damage.
Trees were blown down in Williamson County just south of Nashville as strong winds and heavy rain hit the central part of the state during the evening commute Monday.
Nickel-size hail was reported at the 100 Oaks Mall south of downtown Nashville just off Interstate 65.
Rain and strong winds also were reported in southern Middle Tennessee in the Pulaski area.
The Nashville area was under a tornado warning for about an hour as many people headed home from work.
Unusually warm weather set the stage for the thunderstorms. Some spots hit 90 degrees over the weekend.
