Heavy weekend rain leaves high river levels


Rain totals exceeded 5" in parts of Middle Tennessee this weekend and we've paid the price with localized flooding. Nashville's airport saw approximately 3.5" of rain, nearly all of it on Saturday, with heavy morning rain during the Country Music Marathon followed by several rounds of thundershowers through the afternoon and evening.

Small bodies of water like Mill Creek in southern Davidson County rose quickly on Saturday but receded during the day Sunday. Larger rivers like the Cumberland are still running high as the smaller tributaries contribute to rising water levels. Check the image to see the river forecast for Clarksville. You can also head to the National Weather Service's river forecast site to check current and forecast river levels. The site is interactive and a handy tool, since different sized rivers will rise and fall at different rates.

The best news is that we'll all get to dry out over the next several days! No rain is in the forecast until late Thursday and Friday of this week.
