After hours of heavy rain and isolated thunderstorms, the rain is finally moving out of the midstate. Most everyone should be rain-free (with the exception of some light drizzle in some areas) by 2 P.M. this afternoon.
The main threats with this system continues to be flooding and heavy winds. A FLASH FLOOD WATCH continues for most of the midstate until noon today. Lots of roads are washed out in many areas across the region. Be very careful if you’re traveling today.
Overnight, the winds were so strong, they knocked over the downtown Nashville Christmas Tree at Public Square Park!! (Some gusts reached up to 40 MPH!)
Tomorrow– Christmas Eve– is looking cloudy but dry with temperatures in the mid-40s.
Christmas Day’s weather will be fantastic– Mostly sunny skies and cold!– temperatures in the upper 30s to low 40s for your high… mid 20s for the overnight low.
Have a wonderful Saturday, everyone!!
