Watches & Warnings

Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 3:25 AM EDT May. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch in effect through late tonight...

The National Weather Service in Greenville-Spartanburg has
expanded the

* Flash Flood Watch to include 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,
Burke mountains, Caldwell mountains, eastern McDowell, greater
Burke, greater Caldwell, greater Rutherford, McDowell
Mountains, and Rutherford mountains.

* Through late tonight

* multiple waves of showers and thunderstorms are expected to
impact the Piedmont and foothills of the western Carolinas and
northeast Georgia today. Additional rainfall amounts are
expected to range from 2 to 3 inches. However, scattered to
numerous thunderstorms throughout the period will likely result
in local amounts that are much higher.

* Due to the widespread rain that fell over much of this area
this 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, as well as the headwaters of some main
Stem rivers. Main Stem rivers and their larger tributaries
will also rise gradually, and some minor flooding will be
possible along these streams by mid-week.

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.
