Extremely Wet Weather Work Week Forecast- What to Expect


Tennesseans understand that in early Spring the rains will bring. And this year, as March approaches, there are worries of flooding as 2 systems move through beginning Monday Evening through Friday Morning. There is a chance of strong storms on Tuesday we will also be monitoring.

Already saturated soils from recent storms and full rivers and creeks from runoffs are sure to cause, at the very least, flooding in areas prone to it. Here is the current outlook from The National Weather Service in Nashville. And remember to stay weather aware by bookmarking the weather page for your area with Live weather radar and updates.

…Flooding Possible Washingtons Birthday through Friday…

Moderate to heavy rainfall will impact Middle Tennessee Washingtons
Birthday through Friday afternoon as two distinct weather systems
move across mid state region. As of this time, total rainfall
amounts will range from around 3 inches southwest to approaching
6 inches northwest through Friday afternoon. Currently corridor

of mid state region as Tuesday progresses. There may be a brief lull
in rainfall on Wednesday. However, another round of heavy rainfall
is expected to arrive Wednesday Night and last through at least
Thursday night, with heaviest rainfall amounts expected Thursday

Soil moisture continues to remain relative high especially across
northern portions of mid state region. Due to this rainfall
potentially causing additional rises on rivers, several rivers
across area could reach action if not flood stage as week

certain, it is imperative that if you have interest near areas that
are known to flood, that you pay close attention to rainfall
forecasts over the upcoming week. Updated information concerning
this rainfall event will be provided during morning hours on
