LAFOLLETTE, TN  (WLAF) – Wednesday’s periods of rain, heavy at times, was a sample of what’s to come over the next few days.     Showers and thunderstorms tonight may have the potential to produce locally heavy rainfall, especially south of Campbell County.  Although, here in Campbell County, we cannot rule out some localized flooding problems in low lying or flood prone spots.

Periods of showers and thunderstorms will continue through Tuesday producing locally heavy rainfall.  The most concentrated periods for steadier rainfall will be on Friday morning and Saturday with more scattered coverage outside these periods.  Localized flash flooding and flooding of low-lying and poor drainage areas will begin this weekend and continue off and on through Tuesday.

Anywhere from two to four inches of rain is possible from today through early Monday.  With all the moisture potential, humidity is up and the muggy feel is here.

Thursday starts with patchy fog and leads to a partly sunny day with an expected high of 80.  Rain chances increase Thursday night as the low slips to 67.  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 06/06/2019-6AM)
