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

A very active weather pattern will continue to affect Middle
Tennessee over the next 7 days, with numerous rounds of rain and
some thunderstorms expected nearly every day. Off and on rain and
a few thunderstorms will continue into tonight, with a brief
period of dry weather expected on Monday. Several waves of heavy
rain are then anticipated Tuesday through Thursday, with
additional heavy rain likely next weekend.

Latest forecast rainfall totals over the next 7 days range from 3
to 6 inches over northwest Middle Tennessee to over 9 inches in
southeast Middle Tennessee. These forecast rainfall amounts,
combined with the unusually wet start to the year and already
saturated ground, will likely lead to flooding along area rivers,
creeks, and streams, as well as some roadways, low lying areas,
and other poor drainage locations.

Those with interest throughout Middle Tennessee should continue
to closely monitor the potential heavy rainfall and flooding this
week. For the latest forecast updates and river forecasts, visit
