Although it will be running high, the Cumberland River is expected to stay BELOW flood stage in Nashville. 

However, in Clarksville it should crest about 1/2 ft. above flood stage this afternoon, and in Dover about 1 & 1/2 ft. above normal, before falling overnight.  This will only cause minor flooding.

The Harpeth River should stay below flood stage in Franklin and Bellevue, only causing minor flooding in those areas.  In Kingston Springs, it will crest near flood stage with only minor flooding.

Mill Creek receded early this morning in Nolensville, but was rising to near flood stage this afternoon in the Antioch and Woodbine areas this afternoon.  This will cause minor flooding in those areas.

Whites Creek in Bordeaux caused some bad flooding overnight last night, but receded quickly before sunrise.

The Red River at Port Royal affecting Robertson and Montgomery counties will reach 2 ft. above flood stage this afternoon causing minor flooding before falling late today.

Notice the Doppler radar rainfall estimates to the right showing up to 5" in north Davidson County (Bordeaux, Whites Creek) and also in northern Williamson County (Mill Creek basin).

In Stewart and Houston counties 5-6" fell causing considerable flooding there.

Most of the rain today will be in eastern Middle TN, where not as much has occurred previously, and flooding is not as likely there.
