...Heavy Rainfall and Flooding Possible Tonight into Sunday...

An approaching storm will bring widespread rain to Middle
Tennessee beginning late tonight and continuing through Sunday.

Much of Middle Tennessee should receive at least 1 to 2
inches of rain with the potential for locally heavier amounts up
to 2 and a half inches. This rainfall in addition to the melting
snow could cause flooding along rivers, creeks, roads and low
lying areas. The most likely location for this to happen is along
and north of I-40.

Middle Tennessee residents should monitor the latest forecasts
concerning the potential for heavy rainfall and flooding over the
next 12-24 hours. For the latest forecast updates and river
