Day Whatever On Tropical Storm Fay

As Fay is still causing headaches for any weather fanatic, she is still causing major flooding problems in Florida with rainfall totals close to 30" for some areas. This map shows some rain showers moving up through Alabama and eastern TN. Normally we see our system come in from the west and move east, well all this rain on the radar is from Tropical Storm Fay and is moving NWward. The NWS office in Huntsville says that those areas in Northern Alabama could see some wind gust today from Fay, but nothing too concerning. Since we are seeing this rain, I'm going to increase today's chances to 20% for everyone and 30% for areas on the AL/TN state line. If you don't see any rain today (which will be many people) your high should get into the low 90's with higher humidity as well.

Nashville: low 90's; 20% chance
Clarksville: low 90's; 10% chance
Cookeville: low 90's; 20% chance
Columbia: upper 80's to low 90's; 30% chance
Manchester: upper 80's to low 90's; 30% chance
