More rain & storms on the way



The soaking rain we received Friday has caused pretty widespread fog to develop across the Tennessee Valley early this morning. Expect reduced visibility; it will be lowest in areas that received the most rain yesterday. As of this update, there were a few downpours over extreme northern Jackson and DeKalb Counties, and far eastern Franklin County in Tennessee. These were moving east into Georgia.

Overall, the rain chance looks lower today, but a few scattered storms are still possible. Rain chances increase tonight and remain high on Sunday as another series of upper-level waves moves near us. Early this morning, a potent complex of storms was moving across Oklahoma. While this system is expected to pass just our north, the energy associated with it may provide enough spark for storms to develop this evening.

We will keep an eye on it for you and let you know if there is a risk of severe weather. If we do see any more rain, flooding will be a concern, considering some areas have received more than five inches of rain over the past few days. Storms would likely also contain gusty winds and frequent lightning.
