Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 9:35 AM CST Feb. 17, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Heavy rain forecast for today and tonight...

Showers leading to heavy rain across eastern Tennessee and SW
North Carolina for Sunday and Sunday night. Up to an inch and a
half is possible especially across the southern Tennessee Valley
and the smokey mountains with possibly heavier local amounts. Due
to the saturation of the ground from previous rain events, most of
the rainfall is expected to result in excessive runoff with some
areas of localized flooding possible. Stream flooding, roadway
flooding, ponding of low level areas and potential mud slides are
all possible.

Lesser amounts are expected for the Central Valley region and
more northern areas of the forecast area, including the Cumberland
Plateau. Due to saturated soils and rainfall from the last 24
hours, some local flooding could occur in the northern areas of
the forecast area as well.
