...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM WEDNESDAY EVENING THROUGH
LATE THURSDAY NIGHT... for the counties shaded in GREEN, for 2 to 4" + of rain, with isolated higher amounts, according to the National Weather Service in Morristown.
What's going on?
It's a SLOW-moving cold front, so rain is likely to parade over the same areas time and time again between now and Thursday evening. Numbers below refer to model data, which does not always handle slow-moving systems well.

*** Early indications bring the potential of 0.5 to 2.0" of snow for parts of the Plateau and Southeast Kentucky on Friday. Smokies would receive some of this, too, but mainly above 3,000 feet. Very little snow for the Valley, perhaps just flurries. Keep in mind, this would be snow showers, not a snow storm. Classic Horseshoe Effect. Stay tuned. ***
