Storm Team 11 Forecast:
Sunday, June 6, 2021
Get ready for an unsettled week of weather as showers and thunderstorms dot the landscape in east Tennessee and southwest Virginia. This is thanks to a persistent pattern bringing in moisture rich air over the Appalachians and Tennessee Valley from the south. The best chance of rain most days will come in the afternoon and evening. However, given all the moisture in place, there will be showers and thunderstorms some nights and early in the morning as well, especially perhaps late in the week. With the downpours, comes the potential for some localized flooding.
