Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 11:12 AM EDT on May 23, 2017

Expires 2:00 AM EDT on May 24, 2017


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

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of northeast Georgia, North Carolina, and upstate
South Carolina, including the following areas, in northeast
Georgia, Elbert, Franklin, Hart, and Stephens. In North
Carolina, Alexander, Burke mountains, Cabarrus, Caldwell
mountains, Catawba, Cleveland, Davie, eastern McDowell,
eastern Polk, Gaston, greater Burke, greater Caldwell, greater
Rutherford, Henderson, Iredell, Lincoln, McDowell Mountains,
Mecklenburg, Polk mountains, Rowan, Rutherford mountains,
Transylvania, and Union. 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 late tonight

* multiple waves of moderate to heavy rain showers are expected to
impact the Piedmont and foothills of the western Carolinas and
northeast Georgia this afternoon and evening. Additional
rainfall amounts are expected to range from 1 to 2 inches.
However, embedded thunderstorms throughout the period will
likely result in locally heavier amounts.

* Due to the widespread rain that has fallen over much of this
area since the 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. Main Stem rivers and their associated
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.
