The big weather story this evening is Hurricane Isaac which is just south of New Orleans and moving that way as a Category 1 storm with winds sustained near the eye at 81mph… gusts up to 98mph. The hurricane is moving slowly and flooding is one of the biggest concerns from the western panhandle of Florida, across southern Alabama and Mississippi and Louisiana.
We, on the other hand, have a slow-moving cold front pushing southeast through middle Tennessee. That has prompted the few afternoon showers south and east of Nashville that were anticipated. Many of those will taper off as we get closer to sunset but a few may linger into the night.
Temperatures will dip to near 70 degrees and climb back to the low 90s on Wednesday.
We should be begin with some sunshine Wednesday morning, but expect clouds from Isaac to push in from the south as the day wears on. Our southernmost counties may even get some rain on Wednesday. The rest of us will have to wait until Thursday PM and Friday to get beneficial rains from Isaac's leftovers. It looks to be heaviest well north and west of Nashville.
