Those who experienced flooding this past week and are in this flood watch need to pay special attention to rainfall accumulations as flooding is expected to return to those locations. P
A flood watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts. You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.
Widespread flooding possible as early as Wednesday afternoon and continuing into next weekend… .Two separate weather systems will bring moderate to heavy rainfall into middle tn this week.

Between the two systems, 3 to 6 inches of rainfall will be possible for areas within the watch, with the highest totals expected for counties closest to the TN river.
