Statement as of 11:58 PM CDT on August 30, 2014

...Heavy rains deluge much of the mid state... ...Flash Flood Watch is in effect for central and eastern middle Tennessee through Sunday afternoon...

An upper level disturbance and a very moist atmosphere combined to produce heavy rainfall over a large part of the mid state Saturday afternoon and evening...especially from the I 65 corridor to the Cumberland Plateau. Many areas received between one and three inches with a few spots picking up between three and four inches. Some of those locations included Columbia with 3.87 inches...and Woodbury with 3.15 inches. Meanwhile...Jamestown picked up 2.86 inches...Mount Pleasant got 2.83 inches...Jamestown had 2.86 inches...and Livingston registered 2.63 inches.

Flash flooding and ponding was reported Saturday afternoon and evening mainly along the Interstate 65 corridor...from Nashville to Giles County...as well as along the northern Cumberland Plateau.

Additional heavy rains are possible in the mid state late tonight and on Sunday...which will lead to the potential for more flash flooding. Those in the Flash Flood Watch area should remain alert to the weather...and be prepared to move to higher ground if more heavy rains develop and flash flooding develops.
