NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) - Many parts of the Midstate continue to see showers and strong storms today, and with the ground already saturated, flooding could be an issue for some spots through this evening.

A Flood Watch is in effect until 6:00 P.M. for many counties along and north of I-40. After yesterday and this morning’s rain, this could lead to ponding or flooding in many areas. Some storms could be on the strong side, too. Heavy downpours and gusty wind should be expected. Damaging wind gusts have already brought several trees and power lines down across many counties. Rain should clear out late this afternoon into early evening, but flooding problems could continue into tonight.
