Overnight Rains Developing - Flash Flood Watch

UPDATE: Friday's high of 70° was just 2° short of the record set in 1916.
Saturday's high is probably going to be 2° short of the record of 70° set in 1932.

Heavy rain will develop overnight across much of middle Tennessee as a strong low-pressure system moves over the area. With the soil already saturated, heavy rains will run off quickly causing streams, creeks, and rivers to rise. Do not cross water that has run over the top of the road. Remember to avoid areas that are prone to flooding.


Tonight, a 40% chance of showers late (after 3 am) with a low of 59°. South winds gusting to 25 mph.

Temperatures will fall on Sunday after a morning high of around 64° as some storms will produce heavy rains. South winds will be sustained at 15 mph gusting to 25 mph with rain chances 100%.

The rain continues on Sunday night with falling temperatures. We should be around 37° by daybreak on Monday.

We'll keep rain in the forecast on both Monday and Tuesday with highs only in the mid 40's. Expect sunshine on Wednesday with gusty winds and highs again in the 40's. Cold through the weekend with mainly sunny skies during the day and cold nights. Highs in the upper 40's and lows in the low 30's.

A return to winter is forthcoming!
