...Heavy Rains and Possible Flooding Wednesday through Thursday
in Southeast Tennessee and far Southwest North Carolina...

Showers and thunderstorms will bring heavy rain to Southeast
Tennessee starting Wednesday morning. Storms will slowly move
across the area throughout the day. Another round of storms will
likely impact this same area once again Wednesday night and
Thursday. By Thursday many locations are forecasted to receive 1
to 3 inches of rain, with isolated locations getting over 4 inches

Some areas in Southeast Tennessee have seen record breaking
rainfall over the past couple of days, especially around the
Chattanooga area, leading to rivers, streams, and lakes having
elevated water levels. Also, ponding of water in low lying areas
continue to remain a problem.

These previous heavy rains combined with additional rainfall may
lead to additional flash flooding over the next couple of days.

There is still some uncertainty on the timing of storms and exact
amounts of rainfall over the next couple of days. We will continue
to monitor this situation and will pass along more information as
the system approaches. There is a possibility of Flood Watches
being issued for at least some parts of the area for the Wednesday
through Thursday.

Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio and other local media for
further details or updates.
