Scattered Showers and Storms 

Additional scattered showers and storms will develop this afternoon with some heavy downpours possible. Check out the latest interactive radar here  

Tropical Downpours Tuesday 

Tropical Storm Fred will likely drift through the region from Tuesday evening through early Wednesday morning.  Heavy rain will be likely in many areas with the highest potential for flooding in the Blue Ridge Mountains and over the Cumberland Plateau.   

Rain amounts will range from around 1 to 3 inches in the Tri-Cities, while higher elevations could see as much as 3 to 4 inches.  Recent dry weather should limit the overall flood threat, but given the high rainfall rates with tropical downpours, runoff could lead to flash flooding especially in the higher terrrain areas.  

Scattered Storm Threat Late Week 

Additional scattered showers and storms will be around late Thursday and Friday, with wet weather possible this weekend.  Temperatures will be seasonable in the mid 80’s.
