Though there will be showers across the region today, National Weather Service meteorologist Sam Herron does not predict any widespread flooding … for now.

But weekend plans may be foiled by continuing showers through Saturday night, with several inches of rain expected Saturday alone.

Herron said the forecast shows most of the rain falling Saturday and Saturday evening.

“That’s when we think the biggest threat for flash flooding could occur,” he said, and with it, the possibility for thunderstorms and high winds.

Temperatures throughout the end of the week will remain warm, with highs in the 60s on Thursday, reaching to the 70s on Friday and Saturday.

Sunday morning showers will likely taper off in the afternoon, with a drier Monday and Tuesday.

The flood watch remains in effect for several Middle Tennessee counties, including Davidson, Sumner, Maury and Cheatham.

Herron said the region is at “twice the normal amount” for precipitation in February; the total inches recorded so far this month is 9.33, while the average is around 5.
