  1. Last thing we need indeed. The kids in hardeman country still haven’t gone back to school due to all the flooded roads still affecting bus routes. We definitely need to keep an eye on any possible precip coming in the next 5-7 days imo.

    TN valley heavy rain/flooding week of whenever

    I used to work in a lot of power plants doing switchgear Maintenance on the circuit breaks throughout the plant. All the turbine floors are usually on the 3rd or 4th floor of the plants. First floor is usually a huge open area that runs just about the whole floor with a large crane running in the rafters to move large items down and up from the other floors, and you’ll have a few other non essential things on the first floor. I share all this to say that most power plants can handle a serious flood better than most would think due to the way they are layed out. They also have tons of extra drainage valves through your the plant that are there to help in the unlikely event that a fire happens and the fire suppression system cuts on. Those drains could also help if you had flooding from the river the plant was on as well.

    I’m under a tornado warning until 6:15 in Hardeman County. Apparently one has touched down in the northeastern part of the county.

    What are you thinking about the cells coming into Memphis now Jax?

    I’m under a tornado watch in west tn. The line about to cross the Mississippi River in Memphis looks particularly nasty. Flash flood warnings popping up along the path of the cells in about a 5 county long line from Arkansas into north Mississippi/south west tn.

    This one gives you a little bit better understanding as you can see the levee in the backdrop and how high the water is up onto the levee.

    Here is a partial picture of what my front yard looks like this morning. The pond does not hold water anymore and is empty 10 months a year so that gives you an idea of how much rain we have received here in west tn.

    Hatchie river in my neck off the woods is scheduled to be at 18.5 by Sunday morning. At 19ft the river starts to flood houses along river road in hardeman county. If we get to 19ft it could get ugly for a lot of people on or along the Hatchie River. Stay safe this weekend guys/gals.

    Winter Weather Advisories up for muliple counties in the upper north west corner of Tennessee. Calling for freezing rain up to .10 of an inch. Could get dicey tonight for our northern forum folks between union city and Clarksville.

    I can’t help but think how epic last year would of been had we had this pattern of precipitation during our epic January cold spell in 2018. We would of seen some huge snow storms had it happened. As far as right now, I fear for everyone with river front properties as they stand to have some serious problems if these flooding concerns happen as previewed.
