Quick Forecast; Tropical Update

We now have two tropical systems that we need to watch and they both could very well make US landfall's sometime next week. This first image is of Gustav who made its way over Jamaica last night and it didn't really harm this system all that much. The winds are at 65 mph with higher gust. I wouldn't be surprised if later on this afternoon or overnight that we have Hurricane Gustav yet again.
Now this larger system is Hanna. She has formed north of Gustav in the Atlantic and she looks to stay north of Gustav this whole trip. Right now the track has her getting close, if not landfall in Eastern FL next week. We will continue to monitor these systems as they both get closer to US territory.
*Today expect some light fog in the lower lying areas of Middle TN, but we do have a 30% chance today for afternoon pop-up showers/t'showers. Even though those chances are small, we all have a shot at one.
Nashville: low 90's; 30% chance
Clarksville: upper 80's; 40% chance
Cookeville: upper 80's (isolated low 90's); 30% chance
Columbia: low 90's; 30% chance
Manchester: low 90's; 30% chance
