Hazardous Weather Outlook For RHEA County,TN
252 AM EST Wed Dec 12 2018 /152 AM CST Wed Dec 12 2018/ DAY ONE Today and Tonight Some patchy freezing fog will be possible again this morning across northeast Tennessee and southwest Virginia. This could create black ice, especially on elevated surfaces like bridges and overpasses. Be cautious, slow down, and allow additional time to reach your destination if traveling tonight and early Wednesday morning. DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN Thursday through Tuesday A deep area of low pressure will move toward the region at the end of week, bringing the potential for high winds and mountain waves across the high terrain and foothills of the eastern TN mountains. 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 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.
