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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Widespread showers and thunderstorms are expected once again
today. Valley locations from the Tri Cities to Chattanooga could
see some localized flooding today. Moderate to heavy rainfall seen
yesterday and overnight have helped to saturate the ground.
Any additional heavy rains today and tonight could lead to
flooding problems.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

Moisture associated with subtropical storm Alberto will spread
across the region in earnest beginning Monday evening and lasting
through late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning. This has
the potential to bring occasional heavy rainfall to the Southern
Appalachian Region during the Monday through Thursday time frame.
This may lead to localized flash flooding. In addition, river
rises may occur midweek due to the heavy rain and runoff,
especially those rivers which originate in western North Carolina.


Spotter activation is not expected, but reports of flooding or
severe weather is appreciated.
