The National Weather Service is advising that periods of moderate to heavy rainfall are expected for the second half of the week, with the chance of strong thunderstorms arriving by late in the day on Friday.
Several rounds of showers and thunderstorms are expected, with many places expected to see two to three inches of rain, and some isolated locations expected to see even more. With all the recent rain, grounds are fairly saturated and even just one to two inches of rain could lead to flooding in low lying areas.
Heaviest rainfall is expected late tonight and Thursday, with another line of showers and storms expected on Friday. Gusty winds are expected to move in for Friday, with a chance of strong to severe thunderstorms across the region sometime late Friday afternoon into the evening.
The National Weather Service advises that there is still uncertainty with regards to exact rainfall amounts, and the timing of the strong storms on Friday. Stay tuned to Radio Greeneville stations for forecast updates.
