URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Blacksburg VA
638 AM EST Sat Feb 16 2019

...Snow Expected This Morning across Southeastern West

precipitation. Since road surface temperatures will likely be
above freezing, much of the snow may be confined to grassy
surfaces and elevated objects.

...Mixture of Rain and Snow Possible Saturday Morning...

A wave of low pressure crossing the southern Appalachians will
combine with cold Canadian air arriving from the north to bring a
period of rain mixed with light snow. Because of warm ground and
surface temperatures only in the 30 to 35 degree range, snow
accumulations are expected to be mostly around 1 inch or less and
mainly on grassy surfaces. Isolated locations, especially at
higher elevations could receive a couple of inches of snow. At
this time travel problems within these counties are expected to be
limited and confined mainly to bridges, overpasses, and higher
elevation mountain roads. The most likely areas to see
accumulating snow of an inch or two include eastern Greenbrier
county WV as well as the higher elevations of Bath and Alleghany
counties in west central Virginia.

Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio or commercial radio and

...Mixture of Rain and Snow Possible Late Tonight and Early
Saturday...

A vigorous upper-level disturbance combined with a Canadian air
mass present across the region will combine late tonight and early
Saturday to bring a period of light rain mixed with light snow.
Because of warm ground and surface temperatures only in the 30 to
34 degree range, snow accumulations are expected to be mostly
around 1 inch or less and mainly on grassy surfaces. Isolated
locations, especially at higher elevations could receive a couple
of inches of snow. At this time travel problems within these
counties are expected to be limited and confined mainly to
bridges, overpasses, and higher elevation mountain roads. The most
likely areas to see accumulating snow of an inch or two include
eastern Greenbrier county WV as well as the higher elevations of
Bath, Alleghany, and western Rockbridge county in west central
Virginia.

While most roads are expected to remain just wet, some bridges,
overpasses, and higher elevation mountain roads could become
slippery and hazardous, especially during the early morning hours
on Saturday.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for western Greenbrier,
Summers, and Mercer counties just to the west and north of the
area outlined in this Special Weather Statement. If more snow is
expected within the area outlined in this statement, it may become
necessary later to expand the Winter Weather Advisory to
additional counties.

Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio or commercial radio and

Hydrologic Outlook
National Weather Service Morristown TN
625 PM EST Fri Feb 15 2019 /525 PM CST Fri Feb 15 2019/

...Heavy Rains and Possible Flooding Expected over the next 7
Days...

A wet and active pattern will continue over the next 7 days with
several rounds of moderate to heavy rainfall forecast. The first
round of rainfall is forecast tonight through Saturday morning.
The second round of precipitation will move in Sunday into Monday
morning. Both of these events will produce rather modest rainfall
amounts around half an inch to an inch of rain a piece but will
act to saturate the ground.

The main heavy rainfall event will move into the area on Tuesday
lasting into the day on Thursday. Widespread heavy rainfall is
forecast with this storm system. Antecedent conditions will
result in most of the rainfall turning into runoff. Rainfall
amounts during this event will range from 3 to as highs as 7
inches. The highest rainfall amounts are forecast over southeast
Tennessee. Flash flooding will be possible with the widespread
heavy rainfall eventually leading to river flooding later in the
week.

Please continue to monitor the latest weather information over the
next couple of days and stay tuned to further forecast updates.
