Flood watch in effect across TN, GA

Posted: Updated:

(WRCB) - Persistent wet weather pattern continues for the Tennessee Valley this weekend.

Abundant moisture and a low pressure system just west of the region will produce more showers "off and on" this evening. Rain may become more widespread, steady, and sometimes heavy late tonight and Sunday as the low pressure moves closer to us. Isolated thunder can't be ruled out, but we're looking primarily at a rain event. Stormy weather isn't expected as far as a lot of lightning and wind.

Additional amounts of around 2-3" are possible in may spots through Sunday night with a Flood Watch in effect until 8pm EDT Sunday for Catoosa County, Chattooga County, Dade County, Murray County, Walker County, Whitfield County, Cherokee County, Bledsoe County, Bradley County, Hamilton County, Marion County, McMinn County, Meigs County, Polk County, Rhea County, and Sequatchie County.

Please be careful of potential flooding on roads/at intersections as well as downed trees which may become uprooted due to the overly-saturated ground. Clouds and showers will keep daytime highs below normal again Sunday, in the 70s.

There have been a few reports of downed trees due to the saturated ground and weak roots. This may occur in more places until we have a chance to dry out a little next week and some sunshine comes back.

By early Monday the low pressure system will out of the way and we'll return to a normal summer-time weather pattern of heat and humidity for much of the work week. This means hotter, seasonable highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s with daily chances for spotty afternoon and evening storms.
