Dry Run Coming Again

*Tuesday Morning Notes*
Strong storms marched through our area on Monday. Some locations saw up to 2" of rainfall. I measure just .48", but it was a welcome sight for the vegetable and flower gardens. Expect the rain showers and thunderstorms to stay west of Nashville today. Our chances are only slight (at 20%). Two dry days on Wednesday and Thursday, then shower chances kick up again on Friday. Nice weekend ahead. Highs will stay right around 90° from now through the weekend.
