Hydrologic Outlook
National Weather Service Nashville TN
1130 AM CDT Fri Sep 21 2018

...Excessive Rainfall Possible over the Weekend...

A frontal boundary will work its way into the mid-state Saturday,
potentially becoming stationary Saturday night into Sunday.
Several rounds of showers and thunderstorms along this stationary
boundary may offer the potential for 1 to 3 inches of rainfall,
with some areas seeing more than that by Sunday afternoon.

The biggest forecast challenge right now centers around where this
stationary boundary sets up over the weekend. While current
forecast thinking suggests the highest rainfall concerns will be north
of I-40 and west of I-65, the front could drop further south into
Middle TN causing issues for others in the mid-state.

The latest drought monitor indicates conditions are good, as only
a small portion of southern Middle TN is even in any amount of
drought. In addition, flash flood guidance is elevated due to the
lack of rainfall in recent days. This would suggest everybody in
Middle TN could withstand the current forecasted rainfall.
However, if this boundary does become stationary and some areas
see multiple rounds of training storms with intense rainfall rates,
flash flooding could still become an issue.

Please remain weather aware throughout the weekend, checking back
frequently for the latest forecast regarding any flash flood
concerns.
