Grab an Umbrella

Dense fog made for a tricky drive but a beautiful capture over Downtown Nashville earlier this morning.


It is now 9:32am and our 4WARN Live Doppler Radar picks up just a few light misty showers along the KY/TN border, over Hopkinsville and Clarkesville area.


Temperatures are still chilly in the low 40s to low 50s…

A system approaching from our southwest will have enough moisture to fuel a few light passing showers throughout the afternoon but the better chance for rain arrives later this evening.

You can expect heavy rain at times, lifting south to north throughout the course of the night. The bright side? 1. We need the rain! 2. I do not anticipate any severe weather.

Bulk of the rain pushes east and out of the Mid State by early afternoon. A few lingering showers will be possible through the early evening so keep the umbrella handy.

When all is said and done, here’s our expected rainfall totals through Wednesday evening. More south, less north!DT RPM 12KM Rainfall Zooms

This is heavy rain round #1 of 2 this week! I’ll have an update on the timing of our second one coming up at noon today.
