Nate's winds are down to 35 mph. The tropical depression is tracking to the north-northeast at 24 mph.
With Nate, rainfall will be heavier and more persistent over the North Carolina and Tennessee mountains. This is where totals could exceed 2" to 4" today through early Monday. Some flash flooding is possibility there. In the Foohills, 1"to 2" of rain is possible. Here in the Triad, .25" to .75" of rain are possible.
Scattered showers will continue on Monday and Tuesday as Nate moves well north of the Carolinas. A few showers are possible Tuesday and Wednesday as well, due to the humid air mass sticking over the region.
