Radar brought to you by Creative Compassion (ccihomes.org).
Rain is closing in on the Nashville area at this hour. Between now and the rain arriving winds will continue to increase, possible with gusts as high as 45 mph. The strongest of the winds may come after midnight and persist until sunrise. Gusty winds to 35 mph will continue through the day Tuesday.
Thankfully, widespread rainfall is expected to develop overnight. Rainfall totals continue to swing back and forth from 3/4 of an inch to 1 1/4. Even if we get the lower totals, this will be the best rain we’ve seen in many weeks. Keep in mind this is not a drought buster rainfall. Drought conditions will continue for many weeks to come. Hopefully we can get out of this drought before the new year….hopefully.
Severe weather is not expected overnight or Tuesday. In fact, it’s hard to even find a lightning strike in the TN portion of the rainfall. Just be prepared for a wet and windy Tuesday morning commute and allow yourself extra time.
The forecast for Wednesday, Thanksgiving, and the weekend continues to look dry. We’ll see a 30% chance of showers Friday morning.
