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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A band of rainfall will move back into east Tennessee this
morning with highest amounts in areas along and south of
interstate 40. Given the already saturated ground and high stream
flows, additional flooding is likely. Significant stream and river
flooding, roadway flooding, mud slides, and main stem river
flooding are expected. Potential life threatening flooding is
possible.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Periods of rainfall will continue through Saturday morning.
Expect areal flooding which could lead to road closures and
perhaps additional land slides. River levels also continue to rise
with numerous points expected to reach into minor flood stage.
Potential life threatening flooding is possible.

A line of strong thunderstorms are expected to move across the
Plateau and southeast Tennessee, generally along and west of
Interstate 75, Saturday night. Gusty winds will be the main
concern, and even sub-severe wind gusts could bring down a few
trees due to the saturated ground.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter reports will be needed for flooding through Saturday
night and may be needed Saturday night for the potential for a few
stronger storms.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for north Alabama and portions of

.DAY ONE...Tonight...

Another band of showers and some thunderstorms will pass through the
area overnight. This rainfall may produce additional flooding and
flash flooding tonight. See the Flash Flood Watch for additional

of rainfall is possible, with isolated higher amounts in any
thunderstorms, particularly over Northwest Alabama and Southern
Middle Tennessee. This will add runoff to already swollen rivers and
creeks across the area, and dangerous flash flooding could result

area Saturday evening ahead of an approaching cold front. Wind gusts
up to 70 mph will be the primary threat, though brief tornadoes are
possible.

.SPOTTER CALL TO ACTION STATEMENT...
