Weekend Trouble: Could the tropics wash out this weekend?

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The tropical looks to strengthen to tropical storm strength by Thursday and make landfall in Nicaragua.

Then, it continues to track north and could become a Category 1 hurricane by Saturday. If it does as forecasted, it would become Hurricane Nate and could bring us substantial rain beginning Sunday into Monday.

Early models are showing anywhere from 2 to 4 inches of rain, so umbrellas will be necessary this weekend.

However, this is still several days out and a shift east to this track would mean less rain for us—or barely anything at all.

It is worth paying attention to though as it is our next weather maker.
