NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) - Heavy rain in two waves between today and Thursday could lead to flooding across Middle Tennessee.
The first wave comes in Tuesday. The heaviest rain should fall west of I-65, along the Tennessee River and towards southern Kentucky.
While Nashville will have a dose of steady rainfall, the highest amounts fall northwest of the city. This is where two to three inches of rain could fall Wednesday.
Besides wet weather, several thunderstorms are in the mix.
In fact, a few storms could be strong, especially southwest of Nashville, where a marginal risk of severe weather lays from Franklin to Waynesboro. Several storms could bring in wind gusts exceeding 60 mph and small hail. Check the latest weather advisories here.
Another round of downpours roll by early Thursday morning and last through the evening. An additional one to three inches of rain is possible. Due to this, there could be a few areas of flooding.
If you happen to encounter a road completely submerged in water, turn around and take an alternative route. You never know how deep the water really is. Also, the weather will cause additional slow downs on each commute, so make sure to keep it easy on the roads.
By Friday, the sun comes out and we begin to dry up.
