Issued: 6:00 AM EDT Apr. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

... A Flood Warning for urban areas and small streams remains in
effect until 430 PM EDT Monday for Cabarrus... eastern Mecklenburg and
northeastern Union counties...

* at 555 am EDT, Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated
that heavy rain was falling over the area. The heavy rain will

24 hours. An additional 2-3 inches of rain is likely over the
next 12-24 hours.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
downtown Concord, northeast Charlotte, West Concord, Mint Hill,
Indian Trail, Unionville, Harrisburg, Lake park, and Hemby Bridge.

* The following streamgauge has exceeded minor flood stage:
Mallard creek at Pavilion Blvd. 4 WNW Harrisburg
current stage: 13.06 ft / minor flood stage: 13.0 ft
impacts: at 13.0 ft, low-lying areas and the Mallard creek
Greenway near north Tryon street (u.S. Route 29) and east
Mallard creek Church Road, upstream of the streamgauge, may flood.

* The following streamgauges are above action stage and
may exceed minor flood stage:

350 am EDT Mon Apr 24 2017

... Flood Watch remains in effect through this 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, Abbeville, Anderson, Cherokee,
Chester, greater Greenville, greater Oconee, greater Pickens,
Greenville mountains, Greenwood, Laurens, Oconee mountains,
Pickens mountains, Spartanburg, Union, and York.

* Through this evening

* several periods of showers, possibly with embedded
thunderstorms, are expected across the area through the day
today. Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 4 inches are expected
by the time the heavy rain ends this evening, which could bring
totals in some areas near the Interstate 77 corridor to around 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.

* The long duration and widespread nature of the heavy rain threat
is expected to result in significant rises and likely flooding
on areas streams and creeks. The Charlotte Metro area will be
particularly susceptible. Minor flooding will also be possible
along some main Stem rivers, particularly the South Fork Catawba
river, the south Yadkin River, and portions of the French Broad
River. Additionally, heavier short term rainfall rates
associated with bands of heavy rain showers and embedded
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.
