...Heavy rain and flooding likely later this week...

Despite the unusually wet month we have seen across Middle
Tennessee so far this February with 5 to 9 inches of rain having
already fallen, several more rounds of heavy rain are anticipated
from Tuesday afternoon 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.

These forecast rainfall amounts, combined with the heavy rain that
has already fallen this month and already saturated ground, will
likely lead to flooding along rivers, creeks, streams, roadways,
low lying areas, and other poor drainage locations.

Residents throughout Middle Tennessee should continue to closely
monitor the latest forecasts concerning the heavy rainfall and
flood threat this week into the upcoming weekend. For the latest
