Don’t get too hung up on the exact “off” and “on” times. As our Memphis friends pointed out tonight . . .

Monday – AM Rain/Storms, Windy – Wake Up 54 / Afternoon High 67

Severe weather tonight/overnight should remain to our south. There’s only a remote chance of a damaging wind gust or a tornado in southern Middle Tennessee until 7 AM. Do not be alarmed.

Beginning after 7 AM Monday, the SPC (Storm Prediction Center) has included us in its 5% probability outlook for severe weather:

Rain will end sometime mid-day. Rain could linger into Monday night. By then, we should have collected over 1″, maybe as much as 1.5″:

The wind will also be picking up Monday afternoon. Expect sustained winds between 10 and 20 mph, with gusts up to 30 mph possible.

Your ball game tomorrow night will almost certainly rain out.

Tuesday – Chance of Rain – Wake Up 42 / Afternoon High 60

Another wave of disorganized energy will move through Tuesday evening, bringing scattered showers across Middle Tennessee. It won’t be the soaker we are dealing with tonight and tomorrow morning, but it’s certainly going to frustrate the drying out process.
