Irma Arrives

Although the center of Irma is about 350 miles away, the far reach of Irma has arrived in Middle Tennessee.  The clouds started moving in this morning, now the rain has arrived in Nashville.  This change cooled things down to a high of only 67° this afternoon in Music City. Here is the latest track for Irma as it continues to weaken:


The winds have also increased here with Irma’s arrival. A Wind Advisory is in effect for most of the mid state until tomorrow morning.


Secure the trash cans and outdoor furniture, etc.  Of course there is plenty of rain with Irma. Although I’m not expecting any widespread flooding, there may be some localized flooding in areas prone to flood. Nashville could receive 1.5″ to 2.5″.

The rain does diminish somewhat in the evening, but more is expected over the next few days. This will have an impact on temperatures.  Expect them to be well below average for several days.


The sunshine does make a return for Friday and that will last through the weekend. I’ll have the latest on our weather on News 4 at 10pm.
