SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT

124 PM CST FRI FEB 8 2019

...HEAVY RAINFALL AND FLOOD POSSIBLE SUNDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT...

For the period of Sunday afternoon through Monday night a stationary boundary across the Lower MS to the TN Valleys will interact with deepening moisture and marginal instability to provide a threat for flash flooding.  The Weather Prediction Center (WPC) has placed much of West Tennessee in a Slight Risk area for excessive rainfall.  This means that there is a 10-20 percent chance of exceeding flash flood threshholds within 25 miles of a point within the Slight Risk area.



The remainder of West Tennessee is in a Marginal Risk area for excessive rainfall.  This means that there is a 5-10 percent chance of exceeding flash flood threshholds within 25 miles of a point in the Marginal Risk area.

The instability levels are expected to enable the development of low-topped thunderstorms that could train along the front.  This would be in a similar fashion to Wednesday night's event. Right now rainfall forcasts from the WPC place much of West TN in line for 3 to 4 inches of rainfall.  Where thunderstorm training occurs, greater amounts can be expected.

Stay abreast of the latest forecasts, statements and watches over the weekend from the NWS.
