Rain will be sticking with us over the next few days.  Already recorded .32" overnight from the current system. Some locations in West Tennessee have more than 2.5" in their rain gauges this morning. We're continuing to monitor a potentially developing situation for Friday night and Saturday which may result in some severe weather for Middle Tennessee.

Actually it's NICE to see some rain - just got back after a week in FL where the drought conditions continue to worsen. On top of that it's tree pollen season and the air is thick with allergens. Spent a lot of my time down there coughing and wheezing.

I agree...the rain 'washes' out the pollen and grime...glad you are back safe...
