LOCAL 8 WEATHER ALERT: Strong to severe storms will be possible in spots later tonight...9 PM Saturday to 2 AM Sunday is the favored time period...with the potential for large hail and damaging wind, and possibly even an isolated tornado.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Rain is falling again this morning over much of Tennessee and some spots have now recorded inches of it since early yesterday.
Forecasters say any rainfall is helpful, with the whole state suffering from drought. Many counties are listed as having exceptional drought.
Still, the considerable rainfall is not a drought breaker, but merely a good start toward bringing the region back toward normal moisture.
Rain chances remain good through Wednesday and there's still a possibility of rain through the balance of the week.
