Windy and Warm Conditions followed by Widespread Rain

A broad, lumbering, storm system to our west and gradually moving east is giving the Tennessee Valley a warm and breezy weekend and will be providing widespread showers and storms to the area Sunday night into at least part of Monday.

Most of Sunday should be dry, but winds could gust higher than 30mph by tomorrow afternoon. The rain will begin moving into Northwest Alabama and Middle Tennessee Sunday evening, most likely well after sunset, and then make slow progress east, continuing into much of the day on Monday before exiting Monday evening.

Main Hazard: Heavy Rain… Severe Weather Threat Low

Winds will be gusty as the rain moves through, and some embedded thunderstorms are likely, but the severe weather threat appears low. Some localized street and stream flooding will be possible thanks to already saturated soils and the expected duration of the heavy rain. Widespread totals of over a half inch to inch are likely with localized amounts close to 2″ are possible.
