March 2: Sunshine… High Water

The first weekend of March will be filled with chilly mornings and sunny mild afternoons. Today was stellar, lots of sunshine and the high reached 57°.  Despite the glowing sun there is still evidence of flooding across Middle Tennessee. Look at this photo from Dale Hollow Lake, the water is very high.

Beware this weekend if you live near creeks, streams and rivers where there’s been flooding, the water is still rising. Be on the look out for flooding as you’re driving around through the weekend. Most rivers will subside at least some over the weekend. River Flood Warnings continue for the following:

Duck River at Columbia and Centerville, both expected to crest above flood stage after midnight.

Cumberland River at Dover, expected to crest above flood stage Wednesday morning.

Buffalo River near Lobelville, forecasted to crest this evening above flood stage.

Elk River at Prospect, near crest and will fall to flood stage tomorrow.

Tennessee River at Clifton, continuing to rise.


Temperatures  will be cold in the morning this weekend. A light freeze is expected both Saturday and Sunday mornings.

Afternoons will be in the 50s, with a light northerly breeze. Sunday will be less breezy and milder, in the low 60s in general.

More rain showers are likely on Monday into Tuesday, although additional flooding won’t occur. Most of next week will be cooler than average.
