While not nearly as catastrophic as the flooding wreaking havoc in middle and eastern Tennessee, it looks like heavy rain is heading towards the Carolinas. The slow moving cold front advancing eastward has produced tornadoes, severe storms, very large hail, and major flooding. Fortunately, it's losing it's punch as it nears western North Carolina. While severe weather is possible, it won't be anything like the Arkansas storms last night, where virtually every storm was tornadic. The flooding will more than likely, be a problem though. In fact, the NC mountain counties are currently under a Flash Flood Watch.

From the NWS...

* A COLD FRONT WILL APPROACH THE WESTERN CAROLINAS AND NORTHEAST
GEORGIA THIS EVENING...BRINGING WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS TO THE REGION TONIGHT AND MONDAY. A COMBINATION OF
RELATIVELY SLOW MOVEMENT OF THE FRONTAL SYSTEM AND VERY HIGH
LEVELS OF MOISTURE WILL RESULT IN RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 2 TO 4
INCHES ACROSS THE WATCH AREA BY THE END OF THE DAY MONDAY.
LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS WILL BE POSSIBLE...ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE
MOUNTAINS OF NORTHEAST GEORGIA AND SOUTHWEST NORTH CAROLINA.
 
* THE EXPECTED AMOUNT OF RAINFALL WILL LIKELY RESULT IN FLASH
FLOODING ALONG SOME SMALLER STREAMS ACROSS THE WATCH AREA LATE
TONIGHT AND MONDAY. IN ADDITION...FLOODING COULD DEVELOP ALONG
LARGER STREAMS DURING THE DAY MONDAY...INCLUDING SOME MAIN STEM
RIVERS.
 
2-4" of rain is enough to transform crystal clear mountain streams into  raging rivers of chocolate milk. Check the water levels before you head  out to go fishing. If it's safe enough to go fishing, this is an excellent opportunity to hook into a large brown trout with 2x tippet and big streamers.
