February 12: A Wacky Weather Week

Up and down temperatures this week and on and off chances of rain. Today we were stuck in the clouds for most of the day.  The high only reached 38° in Nashville, plus the wind kept it feeling even colder.  Tonight the sky will clear and it will be cold in the low 30s.  Tomorrow will be a little brighter and a lot milder.  Highs will be close to 60.

With so much rain over the weekend, it’s no surprise that many creeks and rivers are very high.  There are several River Flood Warnings out including:

Flood Warning in effect for the Duck River at Centerville affecting Hickman County
Flood Warning in effect for the Duck River at Columbia affecting Maury County
Flood Warning in effect for the Buffalo River Near Lobelville affecting Perry County

The green shading is for Flood Warnings and the blue is for Flood Advisories

Be aware of the following Flood Advisories:

Tennessee River at Clifton, Duck River at Hurricane Mills, Elk River at Prospect,         Stones at Donelson, Rickland Creek at Pulaski, Harpeth River at Bellevue

It won’t help Wednesday that more rain will move in, fortunately it doesn’t look like most places will receive enough rain to trigger flooding.  We’ll keep watch to totals along the Tennessee and Alabama border.

Temperatures will be mild Wednesday but Thursday will be even warmer, in the lower 70s.  Rain is  likely Thursday night into Friday. Temperatures take a nose dive Friday into the 40s.
