CODE RED Heavy rain, minor flooding possible on Tuesday and Wednesday

(Fox 17 News)

Heavy rain could cause minor flooding and messy commutes for drivers on Tuesday and Wednesday.

SkyWatch 17 Chief Meteorologist Katy Morgan said rain will move in for the southern counties around 12 p.m. on Tuesday. It will move across the I-40 corridor by 2 p.m. and into southern Kentucky by 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Most of middle Tennessee will see anywhere from 1-2 inches of rain by Wednesday afternoon. The heaviest rain is expected between 10 p.m. Tuesday and 6 a.m. Wednesday. The timing of this storm could cause problems for early drivers on Wednesday morning's commute.

Some street ponding and minor flooding is possible with this storm. Some neighbors near Hendersonville said they heard thunder, but Morgan said there is no threat of severe weather with this storm.

After the rain moves out, temperatures will drop back into the 30s. This could bring in the potential for some freezing fog on Thursday morning.
