More rain coming as soggy spring slogs on

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A damp weekend is on tap for Tennessee, which is already slogging through a very wet spring from Memphis to Bristol.

Forecasters with the National Weather Service said Friday rain by the inch was likely as a very slow-moving cold front creeps eastward across the state. Recent rain has saturated soil and caused some minor lowland flooding as well as flash flooding that damaged roads in northwestern Middle Tennessee.

NWS record show that, from January through April, Knoxville was 10.82 inches above normal, due in part to an extremely wet January. Chattanooga received 8.62 inches more rain than normal for the period, and Nashville was 5.68 inches ahead.

Memphis is 4.77 inches ahead and the first four months' rainfall at the Tri-Cities airport was 6.89 more than usual.
