Strong downslope winds will develop along the East Tennessee and southwest north Carolina mountains ahead of an approaching upper- level storm system. The highest winds will occur along the peaks of the mountains, but strong, erratic, gusty winds are also expected below 3000 feet into the Smoky Mountain foothills. These winds could contribute to fire growth and spread in areas that still have ongoing wildfires.
It will be a rainy day across the region as a low pressure system tracks across the Southeast. Rainfall amounts will be over one inch in southern portions of the Tennessee Valley. Rain will begin to taper off to drizzle tonight. Another low pressure system will bring additional rain on Monday night and Tuesday.
An arctic-like air-mass will move into the Tennessee Valley and southern Appalachians by late week. Lows will drop into the teens to lower 20s and highs only in the middle 20s to middle 30s by Friday.
