Very Heavy Rain Expected

A strong cold front will push across Middle Tennessee causing the chance for heavy rains very late on Friday night through Saturday. Areas to the south of I-40 and east of I-65 are under a Flash Flood Watch. See warning map below. We expect Sunday to be a decent day with highs near 80°.

Beyond that, expect another cold front to push through on Monday and bring MUCH COOLER temperatures for Tuesday and Tuesday night. Right now, highs on Tuesday are only expected to be in the middle to upper 60's with lows anticipated to be in the middle 40's by sunrise on Wednesday.

1934-Cut Bank, Montana drops to -4°. It is their coldest temperature ever in September. Heavy snow is reported at Glacier National Park (32").
1942-It is the earliest snowfall on record in Ft. Wayne, IN.
