watch, with the highest totals expected for counties closest to
the TN River. With grounds already saturated and area rivers and
streams in flux due to previous rains, both river flooding and

SATURDAY NIGHT...
The National Weather Service in Nashville has issued a
* Flood Watch for a portion of Middle Tennessee, including the
following areas, Cheatham, Davidson, Dickson, Hickman,

Robertson, Stewart, Sumner, and Williamson.
* From Wednesday afternoon through late Saturday night

* While isolated Flash Flooding is not out of the question
Wednesday night or this weekend, area rivers and streams are
going to be on the rise starting Wednesday night. Those who
experienced flooding this past week and are in this Flood Watch
need to pay special attention to rainfall accumulations as
flooding is expected to return to those locations.

Information:
A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.
You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.

...Potential Flooding Mid to Late Week Due to Several Rounds of
Moderate to Heavy Rainfall...
A slow moving frontal system is forecast to push into Middle
Tennessee on Wednesday and linger across the area into Thursday.
This system will provide some parts of Middle Tennessee with
moderate to heavy rainfall. A second system will move in over the
weekend and bring another round of moderate to heavy rainfall to
the same areas.
Right now, it looks like northwestern Middle Tennessee will
receive the most rainfall over the next five days, with rain
totals between Wednesday morning and Sunday morning expected to
average between three to five inches, with locally higher amounts
above 6 inches possible. Most of the heaviest rainfall is
forecast north and west of a line from Lobelville to Portland,
including areas around Clarksville, Springfield and Dickson. Other
parts of the Mid State are forecast to receive between one and a
half and three inches over the next five days.
The periods of heaviest rainfall are expected to be Wednesday
afternoon and Wednesday night, and again Saturday afternoon and
Saturday night.
Since the grounds in Middle Tennessee are still very wet from
previous rains, any additional heavy rainfall could lead to
localized flash flooding as well as river and stream flooding.
Stay tuned to the latest forecast and listen for any watches or
warnings that might be prompted by the heavy rainfall over the
next five days.
