...HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK...

HEAVY RAINFALL IS EXPECTED IN MIDDLE TENNESSEE...ESPECIALLY MONDAY
EVENING AND MONDAY NIGHT. THIS COULD RESULT IN FLASH FLOODING ACROSS
THE AREA. A FLASH FLOOD WATCH WILL LIKELY BE ISSUED BY MONDAY.

OVER THE PAST FEW DAYS...THE MID STATE HAS RECEIVED SEVERAL
EPISODES OF RAINFALL...AND MANY AREAS HAVE BECOME SATURATED. A
STALLED FRONT OVER THE AREA WILL CONTINUE TO PRODUCE SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS TODAY THROUGH MONDAY. RAINFALL AMOUNTS FROM THIS
MORNING THROUGH MONDAY AFTERNOON WILL RANGE FROM ONE HALF INCH TO
2 INCHES...WHICH COULD CAUSE A FEW LOCALIZED FLOODING PROBLEMS.

THE BIGGER CONCERN WILL BE WITH A LINE OF THUNDERSTORMS MONDAY
EVENING THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT...WHICH WILL PRODUCE AN ADDITION 1 TO
3 INCHES OF RAINFALL...WITH SOME LOCALLY GREATER AMOUNTS. THIS
HEAVY...TO LOCALLY INTENSE RAINFALL WILL LIKELY CAUSE FLASH
FLOODING. THIS WOULD INCLUDE WIDESPREAD STREET FLOODING....RISING
WATERS IN CREEKS AND STREAMS...AND RAPIDLY RISING WATER IN LOW
LYING AND POOR DRAINING AREAS. THIS COULD ALSO LEAD TO SOME FLOODING
OF MAIN STEM RIVERS ACROSS MIDDLE TENNESSEE.

STAY TUNED TO UPDATED FORECASTS AND STATEMENTS AS FLASH FLOOD
WATCHES OR WARNINGS MAY BE ISSUED. AS ALWAYS...IF FLOODING IS
OBSERVED OR A WARNING IS ISSUED...MOVE TO HIGHER GROUND
IMMEDIATELY. NEVER ATTEMPT TO CROSS A FLOODED ROADWAY.
TURN AROUND...DON`T DROWN!
