Another round of heavy rainfall is forecast for Saturday and Sunday in the Cookeville and surrounding areas. We're under a FLOOD WATCH through Sunday afternoon. Expectations of rainfall amounts are in the 2"-4" with some isolated amounts in the 5" range. Last weekend we recorded 3.11" of rainfall and there were problems reported across many areas of Middle TN. With saturated grounds and the potential for more rainfall than last weekend, the possibility exists for greater problems this weekend.
I've posted links below to radar.
The counties affected in this watch beginning at 7 am on Saturday are the following:
Remember a flood watch means there is a potential for flooding based upon the current forecasts. You should be aware of and monitor the latest forecasts along with being alert for possible flood warnings. People living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take immediate action should flooding develop.
