Weather service issues flood watch for Tri Cities area through Friday night

The prospect of persistent heavy rain moving into the region for the Fourth of July holiday has prompted the National Weather Service in Morristown to issue a flood watch for portions East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia through Friday. 

The watch area, which will be in effect from 8 p.m. tonight until 8 p.m. Friday, includes Sullivan, Hawkins and Washington counties and surrounding areas in Tennessee, and Scott, Lee and Wise counties, among others, in Virginia. 

Forecasters said they expect a stationary front to bring “abundant” moisture, including heavy rainfall, to the Southern Appalachian region.
