...PERIODS OF RAIN AND POSSIBLE FLOODING FROM LATE TUESDAY  
INTO SUNDAY ACROSS MUCH OF EAST TENNESSEE, SOUTHWEST VIRGINIA,  
AND FAR SOUTHWEST NORTH CAROLINA...  
 
PERIODS OF RAIN, POSSIBLY HEAVY AT TIMES, ARE EXPECTED ACROSS  
SOUTHEAST TENNESSEE AND SOUTHWEST NORTH CAROLINA STARTING LATE  
TUESDAY AFTERNOON.  
 
THE HEAVIEST RAINFALL WILL LIKELY FALL ACROSS THE PLATEAU, CENTRAL  
AND SOUTHERN SECTIONS OF EAST TENNESSEE, AND SOUTHWEST NORTH  
CAROLINA WHERE 4 TO 6 INCHES ARE POSSIBLE OVER THE NEXT 7 DAYS.  
SLIGHTLY LOWER AMOUNTS BETWEEN 2 AND 4 INCHES ARE EXPECTED ACROSS  
SOUTHWEST VIRGINIA AND NORTHEAST TENNESSEE.  
 
ABOVE NORMAL RAINFALL HAS OCCURRED IN MUCH OF THE REGION OVER THE  
PAST 2 MONTHS. SINCE THE GROUND IS ALREADY SATURATED AND STREAMS  
ARE HIGH, THIS UPCOMING RAINFALL MAY CAUSE FLOODING. STREAM  
FLOODING, FLOODING OF ROADWAYS, ADDITIONAL PONDING OF LOW LYING  
AREAS, BASEMENT FLOODING, AND MUD SLIDES ARE POSSIBLE. SOME RIVER  
FLOODING IS ALSO A CONCERN FOR MID TO LATE IN THE WEEK.  
 
THERE IS STILL SOME UNCERTAINTY ON THE TIMING OF PERIODS OF  
HEAVIEST RAINFALL AND EXACT AMOUNTS OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.  
WE WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR THIS SITUATION AND WILL PASS ALONG  
MORE INFORMATION AS THE SYSTEM APPROACHES.  
 
STAY TUNED TO NOAA WEATHER RADIO AND OTHER LOCAL MEDIA FOR  
FURTHER DETAILS OR UPDATES.
