Be careful on the roads as hydroplaning can occur easily. If you come across a road completely submerged water, turn around and take an alternative route. You never know how deep the water can be. 

Rain continues late morning and into the afternoon as the heaviest axis shifts to the plateau before wrapping up this evening. In total, around two to four additional inches of rain will fall Wednesday. 

A break in the action is expected Thursday ahead of another weather system arriving Friday as temperatures rise towards the 60s and even low end 70s for the weekend. By Saturday, there will be extra energy in the atmosphere, where severe thunderstorms could generate. Flooding could again be a concern, and damaging wind could also play a role.

By the time all of this is all said and done, there could be so much rain this month, it may be on record as the wettest February in Nashville.
