days. Additional rainfall of 2 to 3 inches is likely during the next

If heavy rainfall continues to track across this area during the
next few hours, flash flooding will become an increasing concern and
a Flash Flood Warning will need to be issued for this area.

Some locations that will experience flooding include...
North Wilkesboro...
Wilkesboro...

Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 9:59 PM 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

* moderate to heavy rain will take place, with 1.5 to almost 4
inches likely through Monday night. Locally higher amounts
likely near the Blue Ridge, south of Roanoke, and east into the
North Carolina Piedmont and neighboring Southside Virginia.

* 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 could result in localized flash flooding along small
streams and in urban areas. Saturated ground may also result
in downed trees and rock or mud slides.

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.
