If you're in Nashville right now for the 2019 NFL Draft, then good on you. We just hope that you brought your umbrella with you.

According to the latest weather forecasts for the city of Nashville, a big rain storm is on course to hit the city - and it looks like it's already started.

ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter revealed that the rain started coming down almost as soon as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell went to the podium to start the draft.

The wind is already picking up, with the on-site tents and television screens flapping wildly.

Hopefully the NFL had the forethought to tie everything down to avoid anything nasty from happening.

Bad weather has plagued big NFL events in the past, but the league has usually adapted to the situation quickly.

This past year, an NFL game scheduled to be played in Mexico had to be scrapped due to excessive rain that led to unsuitable field conditions.

The league responded by moving the game only a few days before it was scheduled to be played.

Of course, the NFL Draft will be a much more difficult event to simply up and move. With so much pageantry and memories, a rainy day could tarnish a historic day for many players.
