Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 2:56 PM EDT Jul. 27, 2017 – National Weather Service

... A strong thunderstorm with intense lightning will impact north
central Henderson and south central Buncombe counties until 330 PM
EDT...

At 256 PM EDT, Doppler radar was tracking a strong thunderstorm with
intense lightning 6 miles southwest of downtown Asheville, or over
Bent Creek, moving east at 15 mph.

Locations to be impacted include...
downtown Asheville, Arden, Fletcher, Biltmore Forest, Bent Creek,
b.R. Parkway-Mount Pisgah to the NC arboretum, Asheville Airport,
b.R. Parkway-NC arboretum to east Asheville, Skyland and Enka.

In addition to intense lightning, wind gusts up to 45 mph and pea
size hail will be possible in these areas.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Torrential rainfall may flood areas with poor drainage, such as
ditches and underpasses. Avoid these areas and do not cross flooded
roads. Water levels of small streams may also rise rapidly. Seek
higher ground if threatened by flood waters.

Frequent lightning is occurring with this storm. If outdoors, try to
get indoors or into a hard topped vehicle. Otherwise, stay away from
open areas and isolated high objects such as trees. When indoors,
stay away from windows and doors and avoid using wired electronic
devices. Do not take a shower or Bath. Try to unplug unnecessary
appliances before the storm approaches.
