Hazardous Weather Outlook For COFFEE County,TN
508 AM CDT Sun Sep 23 2018 DAY ONE Today and Tonight Flash flooding may become an issue as some areas have already received 2 to 6 inches of rain since Friday. An additional 1 to 2 inches is possible today and tonight, and while there is low confidence on the exact location of the heaviest rain, training storms will increase the flooding risk. DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN Monday through Saturday The atmosphere is expected to become slightly more unstable on Monday and Tuesday. More widespread thunderstorms may occur, a few of which could become strong with gusty winds. The current wet period will last through Wednesday, and so the ongoing threat of flooding remains.

SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT Spotter activation may become necessary for rainfall measurements and flooding reports today through Wednesday.
