Some sunshine returns on Monday. 
Next Weather AWARE days will be Tuesday - Saturday.  Waves of rain move back into East TN and the biggest impact will be flooding. 

Presidents' Day: Some Sunshine and mainly dry.  High: 50°

We will see some sun mixed with clouds and dry for at least one day this week 

Tuesday (AWARE): Waves of heavy rainfall (80%). High: 43°

A cool day as rain returns during the afternoon and likely heavy at times! 


This Week: Weather AWARE
Rain for the rest of the work week with heavy rain showers expected. This biggest impact continues to be flooding. If your neighborhood, or roads you normally take, are prone to flooding with big rain events, give yourself extra time the next several days so you can reroute if necessary! Remember **TURN AROUND DON'T DROWN**.  Rainfall totals will range from 5" to 7"+ through next Sunday

We look to be heading into a wet pattern once again where periods of rain will be likely through most of the week. This could certainly cause some concerns as the ground is quite saturated in many areas across our region. Please know what to do NOW if you live in a flood prone area in case you have to take action at some point next week.

We be partly cloudy to mostly cloudy on Monday with highs in the upper 40s-lower 50s, but this looks to be the last "dry" day of the rest of next week.

We will be Weather AWARE again Tuesday through Saturday as waves of rain move across the region. The rain won't be continuous, but opportunities will remain high all of these days with rainfall totals around 2"-4" more possible.

We will monitor Friday and Saturday as well for potential Weather AWARE days as scattered rain showers still look possible especially as we head into next weekend.

This means the overall rain potential from today through next Sunday could total up to between 4" and 7" for our area. It doesn't mean everyone sees all of this rain. Some could see less, while others could see more, but regardless flooding of creeks, streams and rivers along with low lying land and even some highways, roads and streets will certainly be possible. Please remember ALL flooding safety rules. Know where to go if you live in a flood prone area and need to evacuate and make sure you never drive through a flooded road...Turn Around, Don't Drown!.
