Heavy Rain Remains Possible Tomorrow

Weather Update – 11:00 p.m. – Wednesday

A Flood Watch is in effect for all of West Tennessee from now through 6 a.m. Sunday morning. A slow-moving cold front will bring showers and thunderstorms to the area, and widespread heavy rainfall is expected to come and go during that time period. Rainfall totals of 4 to 8 inches are expected in the watch area over the next few days (including rain from today) with localized higher amounts possible.

Heavy rain remains possible in West Tennessee overnight with a slight chance for a stray thunderstorm. An areal flood advisory has been issued for parts of Haywood and Madison counties until 3:45 a.m. where 2″ of rain have fallen and another inch may come down overnight. Temperatures will continue to be chilly throughout the night with breezy weather and lows in the middle 40s by Thursday morning – largely unchanged from where those temperatures are now.

Showers will be touch and go through the rest of the week. As much as 5″ – 7″ of rain could fall in addition to what’s already fallen between now and noon on Saturday with an additional 2-4″ of rain possible in other areas.

Another cold front moving in on Saturday and it could pose a more serious threat of strong thunderstorms for our area. Stay tuned to WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News for a closer look at the risk for severe weather and keep up with Storm Team Weather online too for more updates.
