Looking the map above from the Nashville Forecast Office of the National Weather Service, you can see rain moving in from the west.  This rain is expected to move across Tennessee today. We are NOT expecting severe weather, at this point. Round 2 of the rain arrives on Saturday, we could see some strong storms with that system. Rainfall chances are 60% for later today, 80% for tonight, and 100% on Saturday. Spotter activation may be required during the day on Saturday.
*Latest, Local Forecast*

Huge winter storm going on west of us in Colorado, New Mexico, the Texas panhandle, parts of Oklahoma, and almost all of Kansas. Up to a foot of snow is possible in some locations. Saw where one town was 70°, but had a Blizzard Warning for 6-12 inches of snow...WOW!
