After two straight rain-free weeks in Nashville, soaking downpours will be common this weekend.
Early this morning, clouds are racing in from the south. It’s already mostly cloudy over Nashville.
It’s quite mild, with temperatures in the 60s and lower 70s.
Notice the cold front to our west? Moisture from that will slide in our direction today, increasing the cloud cover, a southerly wind, and humidity. By tonight, it should feel quite muggy outdoors.
FUTURECAST shows widely scattered showers and thunderstorms developing today too, with the best rain chance occurring over western Middle Tennessee.
Tonight, our rain chance will ramp up as Hurricane Nate moves ashore down along the central Gulf Coast.
Look at Nate now. As of 9am, it has maximum sustained winds at 85mph. It’ll likely continue to strengthen before making landfall around midnight tonight near the MS/AL line.
Nate will move northward quickly tomorrow and pass over the Cumberland Plateau tomorrow evening with a few hour period of steady, heavy rain there. Take a look in FUTURECAST…
While Nate’s rain will exit Monday, additional rain & storms will be likely Tuesday. By Tuesday night, look at the 4-day projected rainfall totals for our area:
