THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTHWEST NORTH
CAROLINA...EAST TENNESSEE AND SOUTHWEST VIRGINIA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT...

NO HAZARDOUS WEATHER IS EXPECTED AT THIS TIME.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY...

A STORM SYSTEM WILL MOVE ACROSS THE TENNESSEE VALLEY AND SOUTHERN
APPALACHIANS IMPACTING THE REGION TUESDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT.
WARM AIR WILL STREAM NORTH ACROSS THE SOUTHERN APPALACHIAN REGION
KEEPING PRECIPITATION ASSOCIATED WITH THE SYSTEM IN THE FORM OF
RAIN SHOWERS AND A SMALL CHANCE FOR A FEW THUNDERSTORMS FOR POINTS
MAINLY SOUTH OF INTERSTATE 40 THROUGH EARLY AFTERNOON ON
WEDNESDAY. HOWEVER...THE AIR WILL BECOME COLD ENOUGH ON THE BACK
SIDE OF THE STORM SYSTEM THAT BY WEDNESDAY EVENING RAIN SHOULD
CHANGE TO SNOW.

THEREFORE...THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY OF SOME SNOW ON CHRISTMAS EVE
CONTINUING INTO EARLY CHRISTMAS MORNING. THE BEST CHANCE FOR SOME
MINOR ACCUMULATION WOULD BE IN THE HIGHER TERRAIN WHERE COLDER
TEMPERATURES AND OROGRAPHIC LIFT SHOULD HELP GENERATE A BETTER
LIKELIHOOD OF SNOW.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION IS NOT NEEDED AT THIS TIME.
