Rain Continues for Wednesday

Carbon copy Tuesday's weather for today. Chance of afternoon thunderstorms with a nice morning. Highs in the 80's! Wondering what June holds? The Climate Center from NOAA has the prediction. Thanks to Nashville WX for posting about it.

FYI, we are nearing the 9" mark in rainfall for the month of May...*amazing*...It is the 4th rainiest May since records have been kept (dating back to 1914).

GREAT NEWS ALERT-We have a dry weekend coming up!
