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. Additionally, these downslope winds may erode the precipitation shield that will be moving across the region in locations directly along the mountains that are impacted by wildfires.
Rainfall amounts from tonight through Sunday night are expected to range from a few tenths in southwest Virginia and northeast Tennessee to over one inch across the southern Tennessee Valley and southwest North Carolina.
