Rain will continue to shift to the north and east this afternoon with best chances of rain showers being across the eastern Tennessee mountains, northeast Tennessee, and southwest Virginia. High temperatures will range from the upper 40s to mid 50s.
Lingering moderate to heavy rainfall may create localized flooding issues across portions of the Southern Appalachians on Monday morning. Localized runoff problems and areal flooding of poor drainage areas are possible, particularly across northeast tennessee and southwest virginia where precipitation will be heaviest.
Given the potential for locally heavy rainfall late this weekend into early next week, make sure you know your flood safety rules and know what to do if a warning is issue. One of the biggest rules: do NOT drive across flooded roadways! Turn Around, Don't Drown!
A strong low pressure will track through the Southern Appalachian region today. Strong, gusty, northwest winds will continue throughout the day as a cold front moves through. These winds will taper off in the valleys by early evening, but will persist over the east tennessee and southwest north carolina mountains overnight. Sustained winds of 15 to 30 mph are possible, with localized in excess of 40 mph.
