The mid-state will have several opportunities for thunderstorms this week.

A flash flood warning was in effect for Davidson County until 11 p.m. and Williamson County until 11:15 p.m. as storms moved through middle Tennessee Tuesday night.

SkyWatch 17 Chief Meteorologist Katy Morgan said the biggest impacts will be heavy rain showers and street flooding. Drivers are warned not to drive on water-covered roads.

Showers were making their way across the Metro area on Tuesday, knocking down some Donelson area trees in their path.

Some downtown streets even saw minor flooding.

And a tree crushed a car in the parking lot of Round Hill Music on Grant Street. Thankfully, there were no injuries.

Rain is expected to continue throughout the week. While most of the storms will remain below severe criteria, heavy rain will be likely in any storm that does develop. That could lead to brief, minor flooding.

The rain won't pose a severe weather threat, but Fox 17 Chief Meteorologist Katy Morgan is monitoring the potential for severe storms on Saturday.
