NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Sunday is the first day of March. And right on cue our weather pattern, it looks to flip to much more 'spring-like' starting Sunday through the middle of next week.

Along with spring-like temperatures, will come a chance for spring-like storms across the Southeast, including a risk for severe weather from the Gulf coast of Louisiana through the Arklamiss region next Tuesday.

A significant flooding risk will accompany the chance for strong to severe storms as heavy rain works it's way up the swollen Mississippi (and other water-ways across the Southeast). Early estimates for our area are 2"-4" from Monday through early Wednesday, although some spots may see as much as 6" of rain by the time it's all said and done. This range will be adjusted over the next few days as the nitty-gritty of this next weather system comes into better focus.

Bottom line, enjoy the sunshine and warmth on Sunday then be ready for a bumpy and water-logged start to next week, including heavy rain potential for super Tuesday voting.
