*** TOTAL RAINFALL that I am expecting THIS WEEK:
3 to 4" of rain with isolated 5" + amounts when you add up Monday's rain, plus what we get Today, plus Wednesday, plus Thursday of this week. ***
LAST WEEK, Knoxville received 5.63" of rain from Tuesday to Thursday.
McGhee Tyson Airport so far this week.
Yesterday (Monday): 0.92"
Today, as of 11 AM: 1.24"
So Far... 2.16"
That means in one week or 7 days, Knoxville has received, as of 11 AM today:
over 7.79" of rain and 1.0" of snow.
***TURN AROUND, DON'T DROWN ! ***
East Tennessee is no longer under a FLOOD WATCH (that has been canceled by NWS-Morristown), but rather we are now under a FLASH FLOOD WATCH.
So what's the difference?
A FLOOD WATCH means "Be Prepared."
A Flood Watch is issued when conditions are favorable for a specific hazardous weather event to occur. A Flood Watch is issued when conditions are favorable for flooding. It does not mean flooding will occur, but it is possible.
A FLASH FLOOD WATCH means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation. A flash flood is a sudden violent flood that can take from minutes to hours to develop. If you come to a closed or flooded road...turn around! Don`t drown!
