...Mixture of Rain and Snow Possible Saturday Morning...

A wave of low pressure crossing the southern Appalachians will
combine with cold Canadian air arriving from the north to bring a
period of rain mixed with light snow. Because of warm ground and
surface temperatures only in the 30 to 35 degree range, snow
accumulations are expected to be mostly around 1 inch or less and
mainly on grassy surfaces. Isolated locations, especially at
higher elevations could receive a couple of inches of snow. At
this time travel problems within these counties are expected to be
limited and confined mainly to bridges, overpasses, and higher
elevation mountain roads. The most likely areas to see
accumulating snow of an inch or two include eastern Greenbrier
county WV as well as the higher elevations of Bath and Alleghany
counties in west central Virginia.

Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio or commercial radio and
television for the latest weather information.

...More heavy rain and flooding possible across Middle Tennessee
next week...

A very active weather pattern is expected to continue affecting
Middle Tennessee through next week into the following weekend,
with frequent storm systems bringing rain almost every single
day. Although dry conditions are expected today, the next round
of rain will arrive on Sunday into Sunday night. After another
brief drying out on Monday, particularly heavy rain is forecast
from Tuesday through Thursday of next week, and even more heavy
rain is possible next weekend. Although the forecast remains
uncertain on which parts of Middle Tennessee may see the heaviest
rainfall next week, current indications are that total rainfall
amounts could reach anywhere from 2 to 8 inches.

Due to the frequent and well-above normal rainfall that has
already fallen across Middle Tennessee this month, grounds are
saturated and many rivers, creeks and streams are already running
high. The forecast heavy rainfall over the next week has the
potential to cause significant flooding along area rivers, with
flooding of some area roadways, low lying areas, and other poor
drainage locations also possible.

Residents across Middle Tennessee should continue to closely
monitor the potential for heavy rainfall and flooding next week.

...Heavy Rains and Possible Flooding Expected over the next 7
Days...

A wet and active pattern will continue over the next 7 days with
several rounds of moderate to heavy rainfall forecast. The first
round of rainfall is forecast tonight through Saturday morning.
The second round of precipitation will move in Sunday into Monday
morning. Both of these events will produce rather modest rainfall
amounts around half an inch to an inch of rain a piece but will
act to saturate the ground.

The main heavy rainfall event will move into the area on Tuesday
lasting into the day on Thursday. Widespread heavy rainfall is
forecast with this storm system. Antecedent conditions will
result in most of the rainfall turning into runoff. Rainfall
amounts during this event will range from 3 to as highs as 7
inches. The highest rainfall amounts are forecast over southeast
Tennessee. Flash flooding will be possible with the widespread
heavy rainfall eventually leading to river flooding later in the
week.

Please continue to monitor the latest weather information over the
next couple of days and stay tuned to further forecast updates.

Hydrologic Outlook
National Weather Service Huntsville AL
207 PM CST Fri Feb 15 2019

...Flooding chances continue to increase for next week...

A wet pattern will set up across the Tennessee Valley for much of the
next week, with several rounds of heavy rainfall affecting Northern
Alabama and portions of Southern Middle Tennessee beginning late
Monday. Throughout the week ahead, a frontal boundary will stall
across the area, though there is some uncertainty as to exactly where
this feature will end up. The heaviest rainfall axis is expected to
be along this stalled frontal boundary, where anywhere between 5 to 8
inches of rainfall are forecast. Isolated higher amounts are
possible.

While rainfall is literally forecasted for every day next week, the
greatest potential for heavy rainfall and flooding will be from
late Monday evening through at least midday Wednesday, if not
lingering into Thursday. Given the wet ground conditions in place
from recent rainfall, much of this expected 4-9" of rainfall will
immediately convert to runoff. This will overwhelm the natural
drainage processes, leading to flash flooding potentially at the
onset of the heavy rain, and later in the week, widespread river
flooding. Again, while there is still some uncertainty in exactly
where the front will stall, nearly all of the river gages on the
Tennessee River (and those on tributaries that feed into the
Tennessee River) will likely reach flood stage at some point next
week. The question will be how many will reach Moderate Stage (or
higher). Lingering flooding on the Tennessee River will begin late
next week, and will likely linger into the following week as well.

Residents across Northern Alabama and Southern Middle Tennessee
should continue to monitor this unfolding weather situation over the
holiday weekend and stay tuned to further forecast updates from NWS
Huntsville!
