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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

A cold front moving into the region tonight will bring widespread
showers and the potential for a few thunderstorms to the area. A
stray storm may become strong to marginally severe with winds of
up to 60 mph. Locally heavy downpours will also be possible with
these showers and thunderstorms and could lead to localized
flooding in low lying areas.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

As the front pushes through the area on Sunday, widespread showers
with locally heavy downpours at times could bring rainfall totals
to near 1.5 inches in spots. This could lead to further localized
flooding. A stray strong to marginally severe storm could produce
wind gusts up to 60 mph.

From Tuesday night through Thursday night there are expected to be
rains across much of the area. With grounds fairly moist from the
recent wet conditions, it will be more likely for flooding of
low-lying areas, as well as creeks and rivers to be rising.
