Flood Watches are in effect for Southwest Virginia, Southern West Virginia and East Tennessee. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Eastern and Southern Kentucky.

The Weekend
Saturday morning is when the bulk of the showers and storms will arrive. Honestly, if you do not have any plans for Saturday your best bet is to just stay home.

The western portion of our viewing area is under a Marginal Risk for severe weather (1 out of 5) on Saturday. This is for a line of storms expected late in the evening. The greatest threat will be gusty winds and heavy rain. We could see a lot of trees down with gusty winds and saturated grounds.

Through Sunday, our area could see about 1-2+" with some spots seeing 3". Right now models like the idea of the bulk of the showers being south of the Hal Rogers Parkway. However, I do think everyone will see rain this weekend.

Highs on Saturday will be in the low 60s in the evening hours with lows in the mid 50s around midnight.

A lot of the rivers will reach their second crest of the week sometime on Saturday or early Sunday morning. Mudslides and rockslides are still at a high risk heading into the weekend as well.

The good news is rain chances will become more scattered late Saturday into Sunday morning. By Sunday the clouds will start to clear and temperatures will start to drop as well. Highs for Sunday will be in the upper 50s around midnight with temperatures dropping all day. Overnight lows will be in the upper 20s.

Extended Forecast
By the new work week, we will see sunshine and drier weather return. Monday and Tuesday will be calm with scattered rain chances likely returning by midweek.

We will be keeping you posted on air, online, on social media and on the WYMT Weather app.
