Tropical Storm Nicole continues to churn in the Atlantic, making her way westward. This system could strengthen into a hurricane as soon as tomorrow evening, before making landfall across Florida and pivoting northeast. Though this isn't good news for the already hit Florida, this will bring some much needed rainfall to our neck of the woods.
Looking at potential rainfall amounts, we could range from 0.5-1 inch. Locally higher amounts will be possible across the far east, where up to 2" is possible for some. Amounts will decrease the further west you go, with a sharp cutoff likely across the plateau and into Middle Tennessee. Like yesterday, changes remain likely, but confidence is growing better rainfall will come about with more of a westward path. Rain chances arrive late Thursday, through Veterans Day, and end early Saturday morning.
In addition to this tropical system, a strong cold front will also be sliding through the area. Following the showers late work week, very cool temperatures will find the area. Highs this weekend will range in the 40s to low 50s, with overnight lows in the 20s and even teens for some. Brace for this quick change, as we are currently in the low 70s across the area this afternoon.
That will do it for today...be sure to check us out on Twitter & Facebook by following @SecretCityWx. Have a great day and enjoy these beautiful conditions!
