Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 12:12 AM EDT Apr. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch remains in effect through Monday evening...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of North Carolina, Virginia, and southeast West
Virginia, including the following areas, in North Carolina,
Alleghany NC, Ashe, Caswell, Rockingham, Stokes, Surry,
Watauga, Wilkes, and Yadkin. In Virginia, Appomattox, Bedford,
Bland, Botetourt, Campbell, Carroll, Charlotte, Craig, Floyd,
Franklin, Giles, Grayson, Halifax, Henry, Montgomery, Patrick,
Pittsylvania, Pulaski, Roanoke, Smyth, Tazewell, and Wythe. In
southeast West Virginia, Mercer.

* Through Monday evening

* several periods of showers with heavy rain are expected across
the area from through Monday evening. Total rainfall amounts of
2 to 4 inches are possible with locally higher amounts possible
along the Blue Ridge.

* The duration and widespread nature of the heavy rainfall is
expected to result in rises and potential flooding on area
streams, while flooding may also be possible along some main
Stem rivers on Monday or Tuesday. Additionally, heavier short
term rainfall rates associated with bands of heavy rain
showers and thunderstorms could result in localized flash
flooding along small streams and in urban areas.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
