Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 4:08 AM EDT Apr. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch remains in effect through Monday evening...

The Flood Watch continues for

* 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, and Rowan. In western
North Carolina, Avery, Buncombe, Burke mountains, Caldwell
mountains, eastern McDowell, eastern Polk, Graham, greater
Burke, greater Caldwell, greater Rutherford, Haywood,
Henderson, Macon, Madison, McDowell Mountains, Mitchell,
northern Jackson, Polk mountains, Rutherford mountains,
southern Jackson, Swain, Transylvania, and Yancey.

* Through Monday evening

* several periods of showers and thunderstorms are expected across
the area today through at least Monday morning. Total rainfall
amounts of 2 to 4 inches are expected by the time the heavy rain
potential ends on Monday. Locally higher amounts will be
possible with smaller scale bands of showers and storms that may
develop across the area, especially tonight and early Monday.


* The long duration and widespread nature of the heavy rain threat
is expected to result in significant rises and potential
flooding on area streams, while minor flooding will also be
possible along some main Stem rivers. 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.
