Watches & Warnings

Flash Flood Watch, Areal Flood Advisory
Issued: 3:25 AM EDT May. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch in effect through late tonight...

The National Weather Service in Greenville-Spartanburg has
expanded the

* Flash Flood Watch to include portions of Piedmont North
Carolina and western North Carolina, including the following
areas, in Piedmont North Carolina, Alexander, Cabarrus,
Catawba, Cleveland, Davie, Gaston, Iredell, Lincoln,
Mecklenburg, Rowan, and Union. In western North Carolina,
Burke mountains, Caldwell mountains, eastern McDowell, greater
Burke, greater Caldwell, greater Rutherford, McDowell
Mountains, and Rutherford mountains.

* Through late tonight

* multiple waves of showers and thunderstorms are expected to
impact the Piedmont and foothills of the western Carolinas and
northeast Georgia today. Additional rainfall amounts are
expected to range from 2 to 3 inches. However, scattered to
numerous thunderstorms throughout the period will likely result
in local amounts that are much higher.

* Due to the widespread rain that fell over much of this area
this weekend, the ground is near saturation, and stream levels
are already running above normal. It will not take much
additional rainfall to produce flash flooding along smaller
creeks and streams, as well as the headwaters of some main
Stem rivers. Main Stem rivers and their larger tributaries
will also rise gradually, and some minor flooding will be
possible along these streams by mid-week.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.





304 am EDT Tue may 23 2017

The National Weather Service in Greenville-Spartanburg has issued a

* small stream flood advisory for...
southeastern Caldwell County in western North Carolina...

* until 600 am EDT

* at 300 am EDT, Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated
heavy rain accumulating in southeastern Caldwell County. Due to
saturated soils causing excessive runoff, this will cause small
stream flooding in the advisory area. Freemason creek, Gunpowder
creek, and Stafford creek will be most affected.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
sawmills, Granite Falls, Hudson, and the southeastern portion of
Lenoir.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

Heavy rainfall will cause rapid rises on small creeks and streams,
possibly flooding low water crossings and farmland. Do not attempt to
travel across flooded roads. Turn around, dont drown.

Please report flood water flowing over roads or threatening property,
or landslides to the National Weather Service by calling toll free,
1, 800, 2 6 7, 8 1 0 1, or by posting on our facebook Page, or tweet
it using hashtag nwsgsp. Your message should describe the event and
the specific location where it occurred.
