A WYMT Severe Weather Alert Day continues until Friday morning due to Flooding and Winter Weather.
Heavy rain will continue into the evening. Flood Warnings are out for most of the region and will continue as the rain adds more water to an already saturated ground. Also watch out for falling trees due to the heavy rain. Power outages will be an issue into Thursday as the weight of snow and ice could cause more lines to come down.
The rain will transition to snow and sleet from northwest to southeast starting this evening between 9 and Midnight. Sleet will last longer near the Tennessee and Virginia borders with more snow to the north. Roads will be in bad shape Thursday morning due to the snow, sleet, and ice from a flash freeze as temperatures drop into the teens.
We keep scattered snow showers around through Thursday, with them tapering off in the evening. Friday morning we wake up near 0, so the cold air is not going anywhere fast.
The good news is we begin to dry out for the weekend and will see warmer weather next week.
