This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for the northern mountains of western
North Carolina.

.DAY ONE...Today and tonight.

Widespread rain, with perhaps a few embedded thunderstorms will
develop over the area today. Locally heavy rainfall, and perhaps
minor flooding, will be possible. The thunderstorms may produce
isolated cloud-to-ground lightning strikes this morning.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.

An unsettled weather pattern will continue across the region into the
weekend. Occasionally heavy rain will be possible off and on,
especially ahead of a cold front on Saturday night. As rounds of
widespread rainfall develop across the area, the threat of flooding
along main stem rivers and streams will increase.

In addition, expect very gusty southwest winds Saturday night ahead
of the cold front, and then very gusty northwest winds after the
frontal passage Sunday and Sunday night.
