This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of Middle
Tennessee.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Heavy rain will continue again today well into tonight...with
an additional 2 to 4+ inches likely before ending very late.
Many rivers and streams are near or in flood as well as many
roads already flooded. This additional rainfall will make
flooding conditions even worse. The threat of flash flooding
is very high. You need to have a plan in place now in case
the need arises to evacuate to higher ground. Please don`t
take this lightly. Have somewhere to go at a moment`s notice
to escape flood waters.

In addition, some strong to severe storms will be possible
later this afternoon and evening. Areas from Nashville metro
west, and especially across the southwest, have the highest
probability of severe storms. Damaging straight line winds and
isolated tornadoes will be the main threat with these storms.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Ongoing river flooding will continue through most of the week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will be needed through tonight due to the
ongoing flooding and severe storms potential.
