Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 4:27 PM CST Feb. 23, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch remains in effect through Sunday morning...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of southwest North Carolina and east Tennessee,
including the following areas, in southwest North Carolina,
Cherokee and Clay. In east Tennessee, Bledsoe, Blount Smoky
Mountains, Bradley, Cocke Smoky Mountains, east Polk,
Hamilton, Jefferson, Knox, Loudon, Marion, McMinn, Meigs, NW
Blount, north Sevier, northwest Cocke, northwest Monroe, Rhea,
Roane, Sequatchie, Sevier Smoky Mountains, southeast Greene,
southeast Monroe, and west Polk.

* Through Sunday morning

* periods of moderate to heavy rainfall are expected tonight and
into early Sunday morning as a cold front and associated
thunderstorms move through. Additional rainfall will range from
half an inch to around an inch, with locally higher amounts.

* Given the already saturated soil and high stream flows, the
additional moderate to heavy rains will likely cause
significant stream flooding, roadway flooding, mud slides, and
main Stem river flooding. Potentially life threatening
flooding is possible.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means that conditions are favorable for heavy
rain... which may lead to flooding in and near the watch area. Be
alert for rising water or water over roadways. Keep informed...
and be ready for action if flooding is observed or if a Flood
Warning is issued. If you come to a closed or flooded Road... turn
around! Don't drown!
