of Flooding from Sunday afternoon through Monday Morning...

Periods of rain are expected across the area at times through
early Monday morning. The heaviest and more widespread rainfall
will likely fall across the area later Sunday afternoon through
early Monday morning when 1 to 3 inches are possible. Storm total
rainfall through Monday morning may range up to 2 to 4 inches with
locally heavier amounts.

The rainfall today through Saturday night will help saturate the
soils across the entire region. Therefore, any additional heavy
rainfall may lead to flash flooding concerns across East
Tennessee, southwest Virginia, and southwest North Carolina

Flash flooding of roadways, low lying areas, small streams, and

There is still some uncertainty on the timing of periods of the
heaviest rainfall and exact amounts over the next couple of days.
However, confidence is increasing for the potential of heavy
rainfall and flooding. We will continue to monitor this situation
and will issue more information as the system approaches.

Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio and other local media for
further details, updates, and potential watches and warnings that
may be issued.
