This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of southwest North
Carolina...east Tennessee and southwest Virginia.

Additional strong to severe storms will be possible this
afternoon and evening. The primary threat will be damaging wind
gusts. Additionally, localized flash flooding is possible,
especially in areas impacted by stronger storms the previous days.
Flooding of small streams, ponding of low lying areas, and street
flooding are all possible.

A heat advisory has been issued for this afternoon as well. See

increasing coverage of Thunderstorms through the week...

Thunderstorm complexes will continue to move across the area for

these storm complexes is uncertain but confidence is high that
some severe weather will occur.

torrential rains with localized flash flooding possible. Flooding
of small streams, ponding of low lying areas, and street flooding
are possible.

Heat advisories may be needed again for Thursday and possibly
Friday across the central and southern Tennessee valley. Heat
indices of 105 to 108 degrees are possible.


Spotter activation may be needed for today through Friday, mainly
during the afternoon and evening hours.
