A Flash Flood Watch was issued as additional rainfall is expected through Saturday morning. The watch goes into effect 10 a.m. Friday morning and lasts until 7 a.m. Saturday.  Click here to check for weather alerts.

Bands of rain are rotating around the storm, creating on-and-off downpours off. A slight break in the weather lasted from Thursday night until Friday morning. Keep an eye on the radar at wkrn.com/radar.

The Tennessee Emergency Management Agency will be staffing its operations center in Nashville on Friday and Saturday to coordinate any requests for assistance.
