Hydrologic Outlook...UPDATED
National Weather Service Morristown TN
402 AM EST Mon Feb 18 2019

...Prolonged period of rain and possible flooding from late
Tuesday through Saturday across much of east Tennessee, southwest
Virginia, and far Southwest North Carolina...

Periods of rain are expected across southeast Tennessee and
southwest North Carolina starting Tuesday and continue through
Saturday.

The heaviest rainfall will likely fall across the Cumberland
Plateau, central and southern sections of East Tennessee, and
southwest North Carolina where 4 to 7 inches are possible over
the next 7 days. Locally heavier amounts remain possible. 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 will likely cause flash
flooding. Significant stream flooding, flooding of roadways,
additional ponding of low lying areas, basement flooding, and mud
slides are possible. 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. There is a possibility
of Flood Watches being issued for at least some parts of the area
by mid week.

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