Heavy Rains with Flooding Possible

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect in the next few days. 
More on that later. 

A very nice Monday morning. Temperatures are mainly in the 70's. A line of storms is located right now (at 8:15 am), just to the west of Nashville. Around the Upper Cumberland, I think our storm chances will be ISOLATED (we'll call it a 40% chance) at best. Look for highs today to reach into the lower 80's for all of us.

Now, more about the Flash Flood Watch. The weather will become much more active this week with several rounds of thunderstorms and some possibly severe weather. For the most part, I think we'll things get going later tonight, into the overnight hours and run all the way through Wednesday. This is why the NWS-Nashville has put all of middle Tennessee under the Flash Flood Watch. Some locations back west of Nashville could receive upwards of 5" of rainfall between now and Wednesday night while here in Cookeville and surrounding towns, we expect rains around the 2" mark.
