Comments are Off

The National Weather Service has issued a FLASH FLOOD WATCH for the following counties in the listening area today: Anderson, Blount, Clay, Cumberland, Fentress, Knox, Loudon, Morgan, Overton, Pickett, Putnam, Roane and White. The watch will be in effect from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. central Monday, July 22, 2019.

A cold front will slowly work its way southeastward across the Middle Tennessee area today and into this evening. With a very moist air mass already in place, showers and thunderstorms can be expected. Some of the rainfall will be quite heavy, particularly across northeastern sections by late this morning and into the afternoon hours. This could lead to flash flooding in a rather short amount of time. The rainfall will taper off to light to moderate rain showers tonight.

Ponding of water and flooding of low lying areas can be expected this afternoon into the evening. Drive carefully and allow extra time in getting to your destination.
