Heavy Rains

We are headlined with a FLASH FLOOD WATCH through this evening with flooding rains possible. We've already seen big amounts of rain fall since 5 am. Here at my station, I've had 3" in just the last two hours. I reported 4.31" to CoCoRaHS in the past 24 hours ending at 7 this morning. A station near Carthage, TN reported 5.43" since 7 am yesterday.

Expect these rains to continue today with some storms containing very heavy rain. We are currently under a FLOOD WARNING in Cookeville until 11 o'clock this morning. Rain chances continue over the next 7 days. You can see the latest forecast below.
