Watches & Warnings

Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 9:00 PM EDT May. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until 10 PM EDT this
evening...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of North Carolina and upstate South Carolina,
including the following areas, in North Carolina, Alexander,
Burke mountains, Cabarrus, Caldwell mountains, Catawba,
Cleveland, Davie, eastern McDowell, eastern Polk, Gaston,
greater Burke, greater Caldwell, greater Rutherford, Iredell,
Lincoln, McDowell Mountains, Mecklenburg, Rowan, Rutherford
mountains, and Union. In upstate South Carolina, Cherokee and
York.

* Until 10 PM EDT this evening

* showers and thunderstorms moving east into the I-77 corridor
region of the western Carolinas this evening will produce
localized one quarter to one half inch rainfall amounts. This
rain falling on saturated ground may quickly produce flooding in
affected areas. Ongoing flooding continues across the North
Carolina foothills in a few locations.

* 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.
