Heavy Rains Return

Up to 4" of rain is possible across Middle Tennessee today and tonight as a stalled front with a couple of upper level disturbances will interact with abundant moisture. 1 to 2" of rain will be common across Middle Tennessee with some locations receiving up to 4". Yesterday, in northeast Cookeville, we received .81" of rain in a short period of time. Some locations in Cookeville, especially northwest, saw twice that amount of rain.

The National Weather Service offices in Nashville and Louisville have put together an interesting bit of information regarding the extreme flooding from May 1st and 2nd, 2010. It discusses rainfall amounts, river flood levels, shows the 12 highest rainfall totals, flooding facts, and comparison with Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
