Hurricane Gustav Landfall Time and Area, Labor Day Forecast

As you can tell, New Orleans is seeing some VERY heavy rain fall and wind. The predicted landfall time is between 10-11 o'clock this morning where Jim Cantore is...Houma, LA. The current strength hasn't changed at all. It looks like it will make landfall as a Cat. 3 with winds at 115 mph with higher gust.

* Not much wind and heavy rain for us here in Middle TN is good news, but we do need some rain as we are still in a drought even after Fay's affects. With not much cloud cover at all (could expect increase in clouds from Gustav this afternoon), you can expect temperatures to rise up into the 90's easily today on your Labor Day holiday, so if your going to be outdoors working, drink plenty of fluids and stay cool.

Nashville: low 90's
Clarksville: low 90's
Cookeville: upper 80's to low 90's
Columbia: low 90's
Manchester: low 90's
