Rain spread over the Tennessee Valley early Sunday morning and will continue through the afternoon. All of the rain seen this morning is out ahead of the core of Tropical Depression Nate.
Nate is set to move into the Tennessee Valley around noon, before exiting to the northeast around 6pm. The worst of the weather will come to areas on the EAST side of the storm (east of I-65). This is where we can expect winds gusting up to 35+ mph and rainfall totals of 3-4 inches, with locally heavier amounts possible.
The eastern side of Nate is also where we see a slim risk of severe storms, including small tornadoes. The Storm Prediction Center has highlighted that risk, which is focused southeast of the Tennessee Valley.
Watches, warnings, and advisories: The tropical storm watches have been dropped since Nate weakened into a tropical depression.
A Wind Advisory is still in effect through 7PM for the following counties: Lawrence, Limestone, Morgan, Cullman, Marshall, DeKalb, and Jackson Counties in Alabama as well as Lincoln, Moore, and Franklin Counties in Tennessee. Expect sustained winds over 25 mph and gusts of 35+ mph.
A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Marshall, DeKalb, and Jackson Counties. 3-4 inches of rain is likely to fall across areas east of I-65 with locally heavier amounts possible. Some flash flooding is even possible into Monday morning.
