NASHVILLE, Tenn.--Continued rainfall in Middle Tennessee this week could lead to the wettest February on record.
Some areas will see in excess of 5" of rainfall through Sunday, adding to already saturated areas. Currently, river levels are already at the action stage and will continue to rise.
Runoff from the rainfall remains the biggest issue. Already at 8.32" of rainfall for the month of February, the additional rainfall could surpass the record of 12.37" set in 1880.
The first wave of rainfall will take place Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, making the Wednesday morning commute wet and sloppy with a projected 2-3" of rainfall. A second wave comes through Friday into Saturday with another 1-2" of rainfall.
Runoff, slick roads, and localized flooding remain the primary concerns.
