...Flooding Possible This Week Across Middle Tennessee...

Moderate to heavy rainfall will begin to impact Middle Tennessee on
Monday. As multiple waves of rain cross the region through the week,
rainfall totals will build to 3 to 6 inches.

The threat for flooding will start late Monday into early Tuesday
for areas south of I-40, especially near the Alabama border. The
flood threat will then expand northward across the entire Mid State
Tuesday and Wednesday.

Although Middle Tennessee has experienced drought conditions for
some time, many areas had soaking rainfall last week. Several inches
of additional rainfall this week will saturate soils and result in
at least some localized flooding of low lying and poor drainage
locations. If rainfall becomes especially heavy or pockets of heavy
rain move across the same areas repeatedly, more significant flash
flooding will occur. As rainfall totals increase through the week,
the risk for significant rises along streams and rivers will
increase.

Areas impacted by heavy rainfall could vary day to day through the
week, and the exact timing and amounts are not certain. But with the
expectation of several inches of rainfall, there will be a risk for
flooding area wide. Please monitor updated forecasts and be alert
for any flood watches or warnings that may be issued, especially if
you live in an area susceptible to flooding.
