Starting Monday Night, Things Become Uncertain Due to the Remnants of Irma
By Monday evening, all eyes will turn to the remnants of Irma.
It is still several days out, so there are still lots of uncertainty surrounding where Irma will track. At this point, we will probably receive some rainfall no matter what, but how much and how gusty our winds get are the more difficult questions to answer.
Latest run of the GFS brings the beginning of the remnants of Irma into Middle Tennessee by Monday evening.
GFS Loop Monday Afternoon Through Wednesday Afternoon
Euro shows a somewhat similar, but a bit slower, path bringing showers to Middle Tennessee late Monday and continuing into Tuesday. Irma still could potentially be a tropical depression if/when it arrives, which would mean sustained winds in the 20-25 mph range with gusts upwards of 35-40 mph.
The latest NHC track thinks the center of Irma will arrive Wednesday morning.
With all of this in mind, there is still great uncertainty. We will continue to keep an eye on things and let you know of the most up-to-date information as it becomes available.
