Hazardous Weather Outlook For RHEA County,TN
356 PM EST Sat Feb 16 2019 /256 PM CST Sat Feb 16 2019/ DAY ONE Tonight No Hazardous weather is expected. DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN Sunday through Saturday Prolonged Period of Heavy Rains and Possible Flooding from Late Tuesday through Thursday across much of east Tennessee, southwest Virginia, and far Southwest North CarolinaThe heaviest rainfall will likely fall across the Plateau, central and southern sections of east Tennessee, and southwest North Carolina where 5 to 7 inches are possible. Locally heavier amounts possible. Across southwest Virginia and northeast Tennessee, rainfall amounts between 2 and 4 inches are possible. Some areas in east Tennessee have seen record breaking rainfall over the past couple of days, especially around the Chattanooga area. Since the ground is already saturated and streams are high, any additional heavy rainfall will likely cause flash flooding. Significant stream flooding, flooding of roadways, additional ponding of low lying areas, and mud slides are possible. Major river flooding is also a concern for mid to late next week. There is still some uncertainty on the timing of storms and exact amounts of rainfall over the next couple of days. We will continue to monitor this situation and will pass along more information as the system approaches. There is a possibility of Flood Watches being issued for at least some parts of the area by mid week. Continue to monitor future forecasts for the latest information. SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT Spotter activation may be needed for mid to late next week for flooding.
