Wet weekend, record temps possible

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Another round of wet weather moving into Tennessee could set off thunderstorms and some minor flooding.

On Saturday, expect mostly cloudy conditions with showers becoming more widespread in the afternoon. Thunderstorms are possible overnight into early Sunday morning.

Areas prone to flooding could see problems, but no widespread issues are expected, according to the 4WARN weather team.

The Cumberland River in Nashville will crest at 24.4 feet Tuesday afternoon, which is well below the flood stage of 40 feet, said the NWS.

A strong frontal system sets up Saturday along the Mississippi and Ohio rivers and the result could be a couple of inches of rainfall on soil that is already saturated.

The greatest rainfall potential is Saturday night into Sunday in West Tennessee, during the day Sunday in Middle Tennessee and overnight into Monday morning for East Tennessee.

Boyd said a predicted high near 70 degrees could tie the date record of 72 on Friday.

By midweek, those balmy temperatures will be sliding toward more normal readings, but precipitation will be ending.
