Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 5:15 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 and upstate South Carolina,
including the following areas, 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, Cherokee, Chester, Laurens,
Spartanburg, Union, and York.

* Through Monday evening

* several periods of showers and thunderstorms are expected across
the area through at least Monday morning. Additional rainfall
amounts of 2 to 4 inches are expected by the time the heavy rain
ends on Monday, which could bring totals in some areas along and
east of I-77 to near 6 inches for the entire event. Locally
higher amounts will be possible with smaller scale bands of
showers and thunderstorms that repeatedly develop over any one
area, especially tonight through early Monday.

* The long duration and widespread nature of the heavy rain threat
is expected to result in significant rises and possible 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.
