Weather Alert: Heavy Rain Expected This Week, Flash Flood Watch in Effect


The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a Flash Flood Watch in effect Tuesday evening through Thursday morning for counties including Rutherford, Williamson, Davidson, Maury and more.

Although we’ve already seen 5-9 inches of rain this month, more rain is anticipated Tuesday through Sunday.

“The next wave of heavy rainfall from Tuesday afternoon through Thursday is forecast to
drop 2 to 4 inches across the area, while several more waves of heavy rain from Friday through Sunday bring an additional 3 to 4 inches. All combined, total rainfall amounts over the next 7 days are forecast to reach 6 to 8 inches,” reports NWS.

Because the ground is already saturated, flooding along rivers, creeks, streams, roadways, low lying areas, and other poor drainage locations is expected.

Local officials urge residents to be weather aware and use caution near areas of flowing water and to never drive into floodwaters.
