Is it just me or does it look like the bulk of the rain and flooding potential is going to stay west of 65?

Not just you. Between Jackson and Nashville. Intermittent rainfall elsewhere

I tried saying that yesterday. The models had the precip all on the west side mainly with isolated storms east but not the typical type of coverage as these things usually bring. Heck some areas east of 65 might not even get any rain while some might get a training storm and get 3 inchs. West tn will get the better coverage.

I will be absolutely shocked if anybody east of 65 gets blanked. This is a very rich feed of tropical moisture, and it isn’t going anywhere until this weekend.

Some nice spiral arms are rotating up through Middle Tn bringing heavy rain and maybe gusty winds.

The heaviest rain here over the last few days came Sunday with an inch (the same storm caused flooding at Dollywood).  Otherwise, just about a half of an inch IMBY the last two days (.25 each day) as the flow over the mountains kept the heavy rain on the North Carolina side.  Up to 5.21" for the month with two days to go.  Some areas of the Great Valley have seen far less this month, though.  CoCoRahs reports show some areas in Knox County have yet to see 2 inches of rain in May.

How close are you to Hart rd? Any word on Tahoma Dam?

Mandatory evacuations have been issued below the Lake Tahoma Dam near Marion, NC due to the heavy rains and landslides from Alberto (https://weather.com/news/news/2018-05-30-lake-tahoma-dam-north-carolina-evacuations).  While we've had dark, gray skies with high humidity and little rain in East TN we have to remember that others in our area are dealing with major emergencies from this system.

I was at 4.3” storm total as of this morning. More than half of that fell in less than an hour last night. We had some flash flooding for sure (no warnings from MRX of course), but we got a 4-5 hour break with no rain that allowed everything to drain back down. If that storm last night had hit 5 miles to the west it would have broken KCHA’s single hour rainfall record.

Looks like the persistent MCS in central Alabama will interrupt moisture flow this afternoon in TN. That area between Birmingham and Montgomery is going to flood like crazy. Could easily see 6-10” there today.

I'm actually two counties away.. Tahoma Dam is in McDowell County , I'm in Henderson County.. As of 5 mins, An engineer deemed the dam safe so evacuation orders were cancelled. I have family in that area and they stated it was really scary last night. 

Tons of roads are closing due to local rivers and creeks starting to breech all over WNC.

According the various news sources flooding hasn't been this bad since 2004 when Ivan and Frances both ran through NC.
