CODE RED Warning: Storms, flooding possible in Middle Tennessee overnight


Middle Tennessee is under a risk for severe storms with a threat of flash flooding overnight Thursday.

A flash flood watch was issued for parts of Middle Tennessee, including: Cheatham, Dickson, Houston, Humphreys, Macon, Montgomery, Robertson, Stewart, Sumner, and Trousdale. The watch lasts until 1 p.m. Friday as storms are expected to bring up to three inches of rain.

The severe risk for damaging winds and large hail has weakened a little bit. The flash flooding threat may increase overnight as storms move in with the best chance of severe storms in the Clarksville area.

SkyWatch 17 Chief Meteorologist Katy Morgan said some of these storms are producing 2-3" of rain over a few hours time. Most of the rain has fallen in the northern counties. The Bethpage area in Sumner County has seen up to three inches of rain.

As of Thursday night, there were no reports of flooding.

The biggest rain threat should last through about 3 a.m. with a brief break in storms just in time for Friday morning's commute.
