Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 3:15 PM EDT May. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

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

* portions of northeast Georgia, North Carolina, and upstate
South Carolina, including the following areas, in northeast
Georgia, Elbert, Franklin, Habersham, Hart, Rabun, and
Stephens. In North Carolina, Alexander, Avery, Buncombe, Burke

* showers and thunderstorms with moderate to heavy rainfall will
cross the area this afternoon and evening. Rainfall of 1 to 2
inches, with locally higher amounts up to 4 inches will be
possible in the stronger thunderstorms.

* 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.
