Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 7:03 PM EDT May. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until 10 PM EDT this
evening...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of northeast Georgia, North Carolina, and upstate
South Carolina, including the following areas, in northeast
Georgia, Elbert and Hart. In North Carolina, Alexander, Avery,
Burke mountains, Cabarrus, Caldwell mountains, Catawba,
Cleveland, Davie, eastern McDowell, eastern Polk, Gaston,
greater Burke, greater Caldwell, greater Rutherford, Iredell,
Lincoln, McDowell Mountains, Mecklenburg, Mitchell, Polk
mountains, Rowan, Rutherford mountains, Union, and Yancey. In
upstate South Carolina, Abbeville, Anderson, Cherokee,
Chester, greater Greenville, Greenwood, Laurens, Spartanburg,
Union, and York.

* Until 10 PM EDT this evening

* showers and thunderstorms moving east across the foothills and
Piedmont of western North Carolina and northeast Georgia this
evening will produce localized one half to one inch rainfall
amounts. This rain falling on saturated ground may quickly
produce flooding in affected areas.

* Due to the widespread rain that has fallen over much of this
area since the past 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. Main Stem rivers and their
associated tributaries will also rise gradually, and some
minor flooding will be possible along these streams.

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.
