The Rain Cometh! (Thanks Fay)

The remnants of what was once Tropical Storm Fay should bring us some
substantial rainfall amounts this week!

*Latest, Local Forecast*
*Special Weather Statement*
*Hazardous Weather Outlook*
*Forecast Discussion*

I'd like to point out a thing or two from the discussion area....
EXPECT THE REMNANTS OF TROPICAL DEPRESSION 
FAY TO START THEIR NORTHEAST TREK TODAY. 
AT 07Z, THE SURFACE LOW PRESSURE CENTER WAS
LOCATED OVER SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI, AND IS EXPECTED TO REACH
NORTHERN ALABAMA LATE TONIGHT AND TUESDAY MORNING, THEN WORK ITS
WAY UP THE CUMBERLAND PLATEAU TUESDAY AFTERNOON AND TUESDAY NIGHT,
AND REACH EASTERN KENTUCKY BY WEDNESDAY MORNING.

A HEAVY RAIN EVENT IS QUITE LIKELY OVER A GOOD PART OF THE MID
STATE, ESPECIALLY OVER SOUTHERN AND EASTERN AREAS. RIGHT NOW,
IT LOOKS LIKE SOME SECTIONS COULD RECEIVE AS MUCH
AS FOUR INCHES OR MORE OF RAIN BETWEEN LATE TONIGHT
AND TUESDAY NIGHT. A FLOOD WATCH MAY BE REQUIRED LATER TODAY
AFTER DAY SHIFT HAS A CHANCE TO CHECK OUT NEW GUIDANCE AND
ISOLATE THE AREA THAT HAS THE GREATEST FLOOD POTENTIAL. FURTHER
WEST, TOWARD NASHVILLE, EXPECT RAIN TOTALS TO BE MAINLY IN THE
ONE TO TWO INCH RANGE, WITH OUR NORTHWESTERN COUNTIES GETTING UP
TO AROUND AN INCH.

information and rainfall numbers for here on the Highland Rim..

We'll see if we can convince "Gustav" to save a few drops for the Cumberland area, too. We don't need him down in Florida just yet, until things dry out just a tad.
