Nashville, TN – The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a flash flood watch for Clarksville-Montgomery County as well as a portion of Middle Tennessee.
At 1:18pm CT, Doppler radar was tracking strong thunderstorms along a line extending from 9 miles southeast of Clarksville to 10 miles north of Dickson. Movement was northeast at 45 mph.
Torrential rainfall is also occurring with these storms, and may lead to localized flooding. Do not drive your vehicle through flooded roadways.
Several places across northern Middle Tennessee have received 2-3 inches overnight and with multiple rounds of heavy rain still expected across these same areas today, a Flash Flood Watch has become necessary.
An additional 1-3 inches across the same areas is expected between today and tonight.
The main areas of concern are along and north of I-40, however others in the watch could see localized flooding by this evening, as well.
A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a Very Dangerous Situation.
You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
