The National Weather Service has issued a FLOOD WATCH for the following counties in Tennessee:

BLEDSOE, CUMBERLAND, FENTRESS, LOUDON, MCMINN, MEIGS, MONROE, MORGAN, OVERTON, PICKETT, PUTNAM, RHEA, ROANE, WHITE, AND VAN BUREN

The watch runs from 1 a.m. central Thursday, March 25, 2021 and is scheduled to expire at 1 a.m. central Friday, March 26, 2021.

Multiple waves of heavy rainfall from Thursday morning through late Thursday night will cause excessive rain amounts of 1 to 4 inches with higher amounts possible. Heavy rainfall will cause excess runoff and localized flash flooding in the watch area.

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.

There is also a severe weather threat for Thursday, March 25, 2021.
