...More heavy rain and flooding possible across Middle Tennessee
next week...

A very active weather pattern is expected to continue affecting
Middle Tennessee through next week into the following weekend,
with frequent storm systems bringing rain almost every single
day. Although dry conditions are expected today, the next round
of rain will arrive on Sunday into Sunday night. After another
brief drying out on Monday, particularly heavy rain is forecast
from Tuesday through Thursday of next week, and even more heavy
rain is possible next weekend. Although the forecast remains
uncertain on which parts of Middle Tennessee may see the heaviest
rainfall next week, current indications are that total rainfall
amounts could reach anywhere from 2 to 8 inches.

Due to the frequent and well-above normal rainfall that has
already fallen across Middle Tennessee this month, grounds are
saturated and many rivers, creeks and streams are already running
high. The forecast heavy rainfall over the next week has the
potential to cause significant flooding along area rivers, with
flooding of some area roadways, low lying areas, and other poor
drainage locations also possible.

Residents across Middle Tennessee should continue to closely
monitor the potential for heavy rainfall and flooding next week.
