The sunshine of the past two days will give way to abundant precipitation and a flood watch as rain begins overnight.
According to Matt Regan, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service bureau in Nashville, the flood watch will go into effect tomorrow morning, continuing throughout Sunday afternoon.
For the Middle Tennessee area, especially Nashville and surrounding metropolitan areas to the south, two to three inches of rain is expected, with higher amounts closer to the Cumberland Plateau.
“The bulk of that will fall during the daylight hours tomorrow,” he said.
Regan noted that while it is not a flash flood warning, weather experts are concerned about rivers, creeks and low-lying areas.
And on Sunday afternoon, a slow-moving cold front will come through. “We’ll get down into the mid-30s Sunday night, and rebound Monday to the mid to upper 40s,” Regan said.
By the end of next week, he expects weather in the mid 60s.
