Middle Tennesseans still drying out from severe storms that caused record flooding in Nashville are likely not happy about this weekend’s weather forecast.
The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning for north central Davidson County and southwestern Sumner County in Middle Tennessee until 4:15 p.m. Friday.
The warning is in addition to a severe thunderstorm watch that is in effect until 7 p.m.
According the NWS, a frontal boundary will approach the Mid-state from the northwest Friday afternoon. In advance of this front, a slow moving thunderstorm with very heavy rainfall can be expected.
This activity is ahead of a cold front that will move slowly into the area later today. Some storms are capable of producing hail up to 2 inches in diameter and wind gusts in excessof 60 mph in the heavier storms.
The NWS predicts localized amounts of 2-3 inches of rainfall. This may cause flooding of low-lying areas and small creeks and streams.
