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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

No hazardous weather is expected.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

A deep area of low pressure will move toward the region Friday,
bringing the potential for gusty winds across ridgetops of East
Tennessee, southwest Virginia, and southwest North Carolina. The
storm system may also produce locally heavy rainfall, including
over the areas of western NC that are deeply snow covered. As some
of our area rivers flow westward from those mountainous areas
into east Tennessee and southwest Virginia, there is some
potential for higher than normal river levels to occur by this
weekend as rainfall and snowmelt combine impacts.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
