under these conditions.

* a portion of western North Carolina, including the following
areas, Avery, Buncombe, Graham, Haywood, Madison, Mitchell,

* through Tuesday morning
* Expanding coverage of showers and thunderstorms will result in
areas of heavy rainfall impacting the mountains tonight through
