Re: Rain Chances on Sunday
Southern storm should bring some rain in on Sunday and lingering into the first half of Monday. The center of this rainmaker should roll from Destin, FL to Myrtle Beach, SC, bringing some Gulf of Mexico moisture into East Tennessee. The bulk of this rain, however, should stay south of our area into Georgia and the Carolinas.
