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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

...Windy Conditions Developing Toward Daybreak Friday across the
Mountains and Adjacent Foothills...

Winds increasing to 15 to 30 mph with gusts to 40 mph toward
daybreak Friday across the far east Tennessee Mountains and
adjacent Foothills.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

A deep area of low pressure will move toward the region Friday,
bringing the potential for high winds across the high terrain and
foothills of the eastern TN mountains. Southerly winds of 15 to 30
mph with gusts to 50 mph are possible.

The storm system may also produce locally heavy rainfall, including
over the areas of western NC that are deeply snow covered. As some
of our area rivers flow westward from those mountainous areas
into east Tennessee and southwest Virginia, there is some
potential for river flooding to occur by this weekend as rainfall
and snowmelt combine impacts.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
