NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The remnants of Ida will bring heavy rain and storms into Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky Tuesday.

The National Hurricane Center’s latest track brings the system directly across Middle Tennessee Tuesday.

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for the majority of Middle Tennessee until 1 a.m. Wednesday for the potential of two to four inches of rain with locally heavier amounts possible.

In addition, in the northeastern quadrant of the storm’s circulations, spin-up tornadoes are possible. Although tornadoes associated with tropical systems are usually brief, they are still dangerous to life and property.

If there is some good news, it is that the system will be moving quickly and will be gone by Wednesday morning, with the rain tapering off Tuesday night.

Also, some delightful weather is in store for the rest of the week as northerly breezes behind the remnants of Ida bring down cooler temperatures and lower humidity. See the 7-Day Forecast at wkrn.com/weather.
