NWS Reports



A deluge blanketed Greeneville late Tuesday afternoon with another heavy round of rain that temporarily flooded roadways and overflowed storm drains.

Drivers created quite a splash along major roadways such as West Main Street, Tusculum Boulevard and Snapps Ferry Road.

The National Weather Service (NWS) in Morristown issued flood advisories for Greene County beginning at 5:30 p.m.

The storm lasted only about a half-hour, from 5:30 to 6 p.m., and was evidently isolated to certain regions of the county.

The Greene County Highway Department received no reports of flooded roadways.

Greene County's official weather station, the University of Tennessee's AgResearch and Education Center at Greeneville, recorded only 0.16 of an inch between 7 a.m. Tuesday and 7 a.m. today at the Center's location off East Allens Bridge Road.

This morning, the only stormy conditions in the region also found Greeneville during a brief, intense thunderstorm.

However, more areas across Northeast Tennessee may share in the experience by late this afternoon, according to the NWS.

NWS Meteorologist Jessica Winton said this morning that the thunderstorm hanging over Greeneville at 8 a.m. was the only one in the region, and predicted that it would be short-lived.

"It's pretty much the only one around," Winton said at the time. "There's nothing behind that, but as the front gets closer, we can see more development."

A few isolated showers may come throughout the afternoon, but the best chance of returning thunderstorms will be between 4 and 5 this evening, she said.

On a brighter note, Thursday and Friday should be dry, Winton added.

Unfortunately, however, "Saturday and Sunday look to be wet," she said.
