NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — The remnants of Hurricane Barry could cause trouble for parts of Middle Tennessee Monday through Tuesday. Pockets of heavy rain could lead to flooding and even the threat for severe weather, too.

From I-65 to the east and into the Cumberland Plateau, only off and on showers are expected with a few rumbles of thunder. Keep an eye on the radar at wkrn.com/radar
