NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Moisture from Tropical Storm Lee has entered Middle Tennessee, and the National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for parts of Middle Tennessee.

The watch began Sunday at midnight and continues through early Tuesday morning.

The watch area includes the southern, southeastern, and eastern-most counties of Middle Tennessee, where 3 to 5 inches of rain is expected. Localized areas may receive more rain.

The Flood Watch includes Bedford, Cannon, Coffee, Cumberland, DeKalb, Fentress, Franklin, Giles, Grundy, Lawrence, Lincoln, Marshall, Moore, Overton, Pickett, Putnam, Van Buren, Warren, Wayne, and White Counties.

Channel 4 Pinpoint Meteorologist Nancy Van Camp said the heaviest rains will be concentrated over the next 24 hours.

On Monday morning, the heaviest rains will be in areas south of Nashville.

The storm is expected to produce strong winds with gusts up to 25 miles per hour.

Davidson and surrounding counties are forecast to receive approximately two inches of rain this week.

The possibility of severe storms cannot be ruled out, but the main concern is flooding in the areas listed above.
