Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 11:25 AM EDT Apr. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

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

The Flood Watch continues 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, Rowan, and Union. 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.

* Through Monday evening

* several periods of showers and thunderstorms are expected
across the area today 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 tonight
and early Monday.

* The long duration and widespread nature of the heavy rain threat
is expected to result in significant rises and potential
flooding on area streams, while minor flooding will also be
possible along some main Stem rivers, especially the South Fork
Catawba river. 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.
