Clarksville, TN – The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning for the Clarksville-Montgomery County area until 7:00am Tuesday morning.
An upper level disturbance and an approaching cold front will interact with tropical moisture in place across the area. This will result in clusters of showers and thunderstorms capable of producing very heavy rainfall.
This is coming on the heels of heavy rainfall at many locations in the past week. Flash flooding could quickly develop where storms persist.Flooding is possible anywhere in the watch area but areas which received heavy rains last week or this past weekend have the greatest risk for flooding.
Showers and thunderstorms are expected tonight, mainly before 4:00am. Some of the storms could produce heavy rain. Low Monday night will be around 71 with a south wind around 5 mph becoming west northwest after midnight. There is an 80% chance of precipitation.
On Tuesday, there is a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly before 7:00am. The rest of the day should be partly sunny, with a high near 87 and a north northwest wind 5 to 10 mph.
