This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of Southwest North
Carolina...East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

...Severe Thunderstorms Possible Today, especially areas along and
east of interstate 75...
...Main concern Today will be isolated tornadoes, hail up to
quarter size, damaging winds and localized heavy rainfall...

A strong upper level storm system will move across the Tennessee
Valley Today. The airmass across the area will be moist and
marginally unstable with favorable turning of the wind. The main
question is how much breaks in the cloud cover occur allowing the
airmass to become unstable.

If the airmass is allowed to become unstable to produce severe
thunderstorms, the main concern will be isolated tornadoes, hail
up to quarter size, damaging winds and localized heavy rainfall.

The greatest threat of severe storms will be along and east of
interstate 75, and between Noon and 5 pm ET. Please stay tuned to
the latest forecast from the National Weather Service.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

...Strong to Severe Thunderstorms are Possible both Saturday and
Sunday Afternoon and Early Evening...

A moist and very unstable airmass will be across the area this
weekend. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible each
day. Some of these storms may be severe with damaging winds, hail
and locally heavy rainfall possible with the stronger


Spotter activation may be needed Today, and again this weekend.
