National Weather ServiceNashville, TN – The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for Clarksville-Montgomery County and most of Middle Tennessee that is in effect Tuesday afternoon through Thursday morning.

Rain, heavy at times, will begin falling Tuesday night and continue into Wednesday as a warm front lifts north through the Mid State. Already saturated grounds from previous rainfall will combine with additional heavy rain, especially Tuesday afternoon through the day Wednesday, and may lead to flash flooding.

3 to 4 inches of rain is expected to fall on Clarksville-Montgomery County this week.

3 to 4 inches of rain is expected to fall on Clarksville-Montgomery County this week.

Despite the unusually wet month we have seen across Clarksville-Montgomery County and Middle Tennessee so far this February with 5 to 9 inches of rain having already fallen, several more rounds of heavy rain are anticipated from Tuesday afternoon through Sunday.

The next wave of heavy rainfall from Tuesday night through Thursday is forecast to drop 2 to 4 inches across the area, while several more waves of heavy rain from Friday through Sunday bring an additional 3 to 4 inches. All combined, total rainfall amounts over the next 7 days are forecast to reach 6 to 8 inches.

These forecast rainfall amounts, combined with the heavy rain that has already fallen this month and already saturated ground, will likely lead to flooding along rivers, creeks, streams, roadways, low lying areas, and other poor drainage locations.

Street flooding will be a hazard for travelers. Low-lying and poor drainage areas will be at risk for flash flooding, as well as small streams.

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a Very Dangerous Situation.

Residents throughout Middle Tennessee should continue to closely monitor the latest forecasts concerning the heavy rainfall and flood threat this week into the upcoming weekend.

A Flash Flood Watch is in affect for

Bedford County, Cannon County, Cheatham County, Clay County, Coffee County, Cumberland County, Davidson County, De Kalb County, Dickson County, Fentress County, Giles County, Grundy County, Hickman County, Houston County, Humphreys County, Jackson County, Lawrence County, Lewis County, Macon County, Marshall County, Maury County, Montgomery County, Overton County, Perry County, Pickett County, Putnam County, Robertson County, Rutherford County, Smith County, Stewart County, Sumner County, Trousdale County, Van Buren County, Warren County, Wayne County, White County, Williamson County, and Wilson County.
