Heavy Rain Leads to Fog Overnight

Heavy rain earlier today will lead to spots of dense fog late tonight and early tomorrow.

Very few of us avoided the torrential downpours today!  As the storms rolled in, they made for scenes like this.


While there were very few reports of wind damage, a lightning strike did cause a house fire on the north side of Franklin around midday.


How much rain did we get?  Well…take a look at estimates from 4WARN Live Doppler Radar.  Areas in green picked up at least a half inch.  In the yellow, at least two inches fell.


Now that the rain is done, the sky is beginning to clear.  There’s another batch of storms over Kansas.  That’s likely that moves into Missouri and Arkansas as it weakens significantly overnight.


SO….count on the clearing trend to continue.  With already mild and very humid conditions in place, fog will form in many areas by morning.

In fact, fog is already starting to form in spots…and it’s only 9:30pm!  Areas of yellow on the map below indicate where visibility is down to one mile.  What that means is if you work overnight, watch out for gradually worsening driving conditions, especially away from Nashville.


Tomorrow, count on spotty storms developing, and a high in the lower 90s.  SO…the intense heat will be back!

As for the weekend….we’ll talk about that shortly, on Channel 4 News at 10pm.  Join us!
