Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 2:57 PM EDT Apr. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch in effect from midnight EDT tonight through Monday
evening...

The National Weather Service in Greenville-Spartanburg has issued
a

* Flood Watch for 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, and
Rowan. In western North Carolina, Avery, Buncombe, Burke
mountains, Caldwell mountains, eastern McDowell, eastern Polk,
Graham, greater Burke, greater Caldwell, greater Rutherford,
Haywood, Henderson, Macon, Madison, McDowell Mountains,
Mitchell, northern Jackson, Polk mountains, Rutherford
mountains, southern Jackson, Swain, Transylvania, and Yancey.

* From midnight EDT tonight through Monday evening

* several periods of showers and thunderstorms are expected across
the area from tonight through at least Monday morning. Total
rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches are expected by the time the
heavy rain potential ends on Monday. Locally higher amounts will
be possible with smaller scale bands of showers and storms that
may develop across the area, especially Sunday night and early
Monday.

* The duration and widespread nature of the heavy rainfall is
expected to result in rises and potential flooding on area
streams, while minor flooding will also be possible along some
main Stem rivers. 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.
