Raindrops are falling on our head this morning. Showers are coming to a location near you today. Tropical air with plenty of rain and warm temperatures. We are well into the second straight week of this wet weather pattern. This is likely a direct result of the El Nino and we can expect this wet pattern to continue through the Winter. On the plus side the same El Nino is hampering the Hurricane development. The showers for the time being are expected to slowly taper off a bit as we get into the weekend. Looking for a 82 degree High and a 66 degree Low tonight. Here is the Hazardous Weather Outlook for Middle Tennessee from the NWS this morning. 508 AM CDT WED SEP 16 2009 THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR MIDDLE TENNESSEE..DAY ONE…TODAY AND TONIGHT WIDESPREAD RAIN WILL CONTINUE ACROSS THE MID STATE WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NIGHT, AND SOME PLACES MAY SEE HEAVY DOWNPOURS AND PONDING OF WATER ON ROADWAYS AND OTHER LOW LYING AREAS..DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY RAIN WILL LIKELY LAST INTO FRIDAY, WITH A LESSER CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION EVERY DAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
