NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — After a soggy weekend, the forecast for New Year’s Eve is shaping out to be much drier.

2019 will go down as the third-wettest year on record for Nashville. Sunday's record rainfall pushed this year into the #3 spot just a few raindrops above the year 1950.

The Music City saw 2.53'' of rain yesterday shattering the old record 2.18'' for December 29th.

Nashville's wettest year on record happened in 1979. Meanwhile, this is the 7th wettest year on record for Crossville with 67.96'' with 2018 holding the top spot with 74.88''.

Fortunately, we'll get several days to dry out with activities for the Music City Bowl on Monday and Music City Midnight celebrations for the New Year.

Our next rain chance arrives early Thursday.
