More rain is expected all week long, but the hazardous weather threat appears currently to be Wednesday night into Thursday and possibly again Friday.

The National Weather Service (NWS) says that flash flooding will be possible after heavy rain is forecast for the area. That on top of what the High Country received, in varying degrees, over multiple days last week and over the Memorial Day weekend.

NWS states that 1 to 2 inches are likely along and east of the Blue Ridge and higher amounts possible along eastern slopes for Wednesday and Wednesday night.

A low pressure system will bring tropical weather out of the Gulf to our area on Thursday night and into Friday. NWS says that dew points will increase into the mid and upper 60s for the High Country. Flooding will once again be a concern for this time period.

Rain continues into the weekend as a cold front will enter our area Friday night into Saturday, which could once again lead to Flash Flooding concerns. NWS says that weekly rainfall totals will be in the 2 to 5 inch range.
