Flood threat continues for Middle Tennessee; Duck River, Elk River out of their banks

News

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Flash Flood Watch continues for all of Middle Tennessee until 7 p.m. Monday evening.

The flood threat is particularly high in our southern and southeastern areas where Doppler Radar Rainfall Estimates show as much as 6-8″ over the last 48 hours.

That threat continues into Monday. The Weather Prediction Center puts out “Excessive Rainfall” risks much like the Storm Prediction Center does for severe weather risks. They have that in the Slight range on Monday. Don’t let the work “Slight” fool you. Any risk means more flooding is possible.

The Duck River near Shelbyville is in Minor Flood Stage. The Elk River near Fayetteville is in Moderate Flood Stage.

More rain is moving in for Monday that could cause additional flooding in the Flash Flood Watch area.
