Today however will be beautiful!  Outdoors now (as of 8am) temperatures continue their climb.

Now to the flooding threat…

Rain will move in from the south tonight and expand northward.

 

A Flood Watch goes into effect tomorrow and will continue all weekend for all but our westernmost communities.

Rain will be heavy at times tomorrow, too.  Watch out for roads covered in water.  Remember — turn around; don’t drown!  Even where there’s no Flood Watch, expect steady rain, occasionally heavy.

Rain finally clears the area Sunday afternoon.  By late Sunday afternoon, notice how much rain will have fallen…

Sunday will turn quite a bit cooler too, with highs only in the 40s for much of the Mid State.  It’ll be slightly milder over far southeastern Middle Tennessee.

Make it a great Friday!
