CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (CLARKSVILLENOW) – A combination of Hurricane Zeta and an intense system over the Southeast will bring rainfall that could exceed 3 inches to Clarksville today and Thursday.
“Some isolated areas (of Middle Tennessee) may see amounts exceed 3 inches, especially in the northwest and southern Plateau,” according to an alert from the National Weather Service in Nashville. “Heavy rain may result in minor flooding this afternoon into the early morning Thursday.”
Area lakes and rivers should be in “good shape” though.
“All are running low due to the lack of recent rainfall, but some minor rises on area rivers will be possible on Thursday and Friday if any spots see more than 3 inches,” the NWS said.
The rain should clear out by Friday, with a cool and dry weekend ahead.
