Think We've Had Rain? Pity N. Carolina Folks

The threat for flooding remains low in Greene County over the weekend, despite a flood watch that's in effect for the area through Sunday morning, according to the National Weather Service (NWS) in Morristown.

"Basically, the chances are low," said NWS meterologist Jessica Winton. "It doesn't look like there is a great chance for flooding."

The county has fared much better than western North Carolina, Winton said. Flooding has been widespread in Asheville and neighboring Madison County.

The Grandfather Mountain weather station in North Carolina recorded 8.61 inches of rain during the first four days of July, according to a news release.

"A lot of what happened was the way the storms were moving up the mountain," Winton said. "All the moisture was on the eastern side of the Smokies. It was kind of a rainshadow effect."

Greene County received 1.04 inches of rain from Wednesday night through Friday morning, according to the University of Tennessee AgResearch and Education Center on East Allens Bridge Road.

The NWS forecasts at least a 30 percent chance of rain each day from now through next Friday for Greene County.

Greene County was under a flood watch from late Wednesday through Friday. The flood watch was canceled Friday morning, but was re-issued later that afternoon.

The NWS had predicted that Greene County would see three-and-a-half inches of rain by Friday night. Some local spots could have gotten five inches, according to the NWS.
