MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Tropical Storm Nate is moving through the Tennessee valley with heavy rainfall and gusty winds in the Appalachians and into the Ohio valley.

At 11 p.m. the storm was located about 70 miles east-northeast of Nashville with maximum sustained winds of 35 miles per hour.

Doppler Radar and satellite imagery indicate that the precipitation shield associated with Nate is on the northern and eastern side of the circulation as it continues to become more asymmetric.

The highest rainfall rates are located in the southern Appalachians and into the western mid-Atlantic.

Farther north across the Ohio valley, tropical moisture is interacting with a frontal boundary, leading to moderate to heavy rainfall.

Nate is expected to continue tracking north-eastward, moving into eastern portions of the Ohio valley states by Monday morning and into the northeast Monday evening as a post-tropical cyclone.
