Heavy weekend rains may produce flash floods

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A Flash Flood Watch goes into effect at 3 a.m. Sunday and continues through 3 a.m. Monday.

"During this time, we expect a 100 percent chance of rain with periods of heavy downpours," said 4Warn meteorologist Nancy Van Camp.

The rain will produce rapidly rising water levels on smaller creeks and streams, especially in urban areas.

Those who live in flood-prone areas should be prepared to move to higher ground if a Flash Flood Warning is issued.

Additionally, areas in southern Kentucky (outlined in pink on the map) may receive enough rainfall Saturday to produce minor flooding on rivers and small streams. A flood watch is in effect for those areas from 3 p.m. Saturday afternoon through Sunday evening.
