This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of Southwest North
Carolina...East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A line of severe storms will move into the region late this
evening into early Saturday morning. The main threat from these
storms will be damaging winds and hail up to the size of quarters.
Additionally, an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. Timing is
still uncertain, but it presently appears the best window for
storms is from roughly 10 pm Friday to 4 am Saturday morning.
Locations north of I-40 and west of I-75 will be most at risk.

In addition, strong southerly winds ahead of the front tonight
will produce sustained winds of 20 to 30 mph, with gusts up to 45
mph along the high terrain of the Great Smoky Mountains. A Wind
Advisory is in effect from 7 pm tonight until 7 AM Saturday
morning.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

In the wake of the cold frontal passage, strong gradient
northwesterly winds on Saturday will approach advisory level
criteria.

Strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible late Tuesday into
Wednesday morning as the next frontal system impacts the region.
A lot of uncertainty exists with the timing of this system, storm
environment, and associated impacts. Continue to monitor
additional forecasts for more information.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will be needed Friday night into early
Saturday morning.
