“Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get Me Down”…nice Carpernters’ song, but not really true when you are in a drought. More needed rain is moving in tonight. Some heavy downpours will produce over 2” of rain in some areas.
Here’s what #4WARN Live Doppler Radar is showing right now as I’m writing this.
An area of low pressure south of Tennessee will help bring more rain into the area especially overnight between 12mid to 3 am. Although we may hear a few rumbles of thunder, the potential for severe storms will stay to the southeast. Here’s the latest on Futurecast.
The morning drive could be sloppy, Paul Heggen will navigate you through in the morning.
A half inch to 1.50″ of rain is possible across Middle Tennessee. The Gatlinburg area could get 2.5″. This is not a drought buster it will be helpful.
Wednesday will be mostly dry, but the next approaching system will bring some showers Wednesday night into early Thursday. That rain could end with some snow especially in the higher elevations. With that said that is the big hint that much colder air is on the way. This will be the coldest air of the season with lows in the teens Friday and Saturday.
How does that stack up to average December lows and the record for the dates? Not close on either count.
I’ll have an update on Channel 4 News at 6pm and 10pm.
