Watches & Warnings

Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 4:23 AM EDT May. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch in effect from 10 am EDT this morning
through this evening...

The National Weather Service in Greenville-Spartanburg has issued
a

* Flash Flood Watch for 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 mountains, Cabarrus, Caldwell
mountains, Catawba, Cleveland, Davie, eastern McDowell,
eastern Polk, Gaston, Graham, greater Burke, greater Caldwell,
greater Rutherford, Haywood, Henderson, Iredell, Lincoln,
Macon, Madison, McDowell Mountains, Mecklenburg, Mitchell,
northern Jackson, Polk mountains, Rowan, Rutherford mountains,
southern Jackson, Swain, Transylvania, Union, and Yancey. In
upstate South Carolina, Abbeville, Anderson, Cherokee,
Chester, greater Greenville, greater Oconee, greater Pickens,
Greenville mountains, Greenwood, Laurens, Oconee mountains,
Pickens mountains, Spartanburg, Union, and York.

* From 10 am EDT this morning through this evening

* showers and thunderstorms with moderate to heavy rainfall will
cross the area today. Widespread 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.
