It's going to be a busy weekend in downtown Nashville as visitors head to several fun events, including the Women's Running Half Marathon/5K.

The route starts and ends at the Country Music Hall of Fame and will have several roads closed for a few hours Saturday morning, including sections of James Robertson Parkway, Church Street, 31st Avenue, Belmont Boulevard and 16th Avenue South.

The race begins at 7 a.m.

Tickets are still available Saturday for the Southern Ground Music and Food Festival at The Lawn at Riverfront Park, featuring Zac Brown Band, Willie Nelson, John Fogerty, Kacy Musgraves and many others. Find details here: http://nashville.southerngroundfestival.com/.

And normal traffic restrictions will be in place Sunday for the Titans' home game versus the New York Jets, which kicks off at 3 p.m.

Pedestrians will be able to cross the Cumberland River via the Woodland Street bridge as well as the Shelby Street pedestrian bridge in order to access LP Field.

    Around sunset, most of the rain will come to an end. After midnight, most of the clouds will clear away, and the rain chances go back down to zero. The temperatures will still be warm and muggy tonight. Lows will be in the lower to mid 70s. On Memorial Day, I cannot rule out a couple stray showers. Therefore, I do have a 20% chance for some rain. These showers will be from the outflow from Alberto. If you plan on spending some time outside, it should be a nice day to do so.
