FLASH FLOOD W. NC

: Flood Watch
Alert: …HEAVY RAINFALL TONIGHT MAY PRODUCE FLOODING ACROSS PARTS OF
THE WESTERN CAROLINAS AND NORTHEAST GEORGIA…

.A low pressure system approaching from the west tonight will be
accompanied by abundant moisture. Strong southeasterly winds ahead
of the system will wring out very heavy rainfall across the
eastern slopes of the southern Appalachians and the adjacent
foothills tonight. The duration of the moderate to heavy rainfall
may produce flooding along streams, creeks, and main stem rivers
within the Watch area. Longer duration flooding along main stem
rivers could linger into mid-week.

…FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH TUESDAY MORNING…
The Flood Watch continues for

  • portions of northeast Georgia, western North Carolina, and
    upstate South Carolina, including the following areas, in
    northeast Georgia, Elbert, Franklin, Habersham, Hart, Rabun,
    and Stephens. In western North Carolina, Avery, Buncombe,
    Burke Mountains, Caldwell Mountains, Eastern McDowell, Eastern
    Polk, Greater Burke, Greater Caldwell, Greater Rutherford,
    Henderson, Macon, McDowell Mountains, Mitchell, Northern
    Jackson, Polk Mountains, Rutherford Mountains, Southern
    Jackson, Transylvania, and Yancey. In upstate South Carolina,
    Anderson, Greater Greenville, Greater Oconee, Greater Pickens,
    Greenville Mountains, Oconee Mountains, Pickens Mountains, and
    Spartanburg.

  • through Tuesday morning

  • Abundant moisture ahead of a low pressure system slowly
    approaching from the west will yield heavy rainfall across the
    eastern slopes of the southern Appalachians and adjacent
    foothill areas today tonight. Additional rainfall amounts 1 to 4
    inches are expected in many of these locations, with the highest
    amounts in the most upslope preferred areas of the eastern
    slopes of the mountains.

  • Flooding may develop along streams, creeks, and main stem
    rivers. Flooding is most likely along the upper reaches of the
    French Broad River and its associated tributaries. Flooding
    will also be quite possible along the Saluda River in Upstate
    South Carolina as well as the Catawba River chain in the North
    Carolina foothills. Flooding from the heavy rainfall could
    linger into Tuesday or beyond, especially along any main stem
    rivers that flood.

Instructions: A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts of heavy rainfall. You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible Flood Warnings. Consider moving vehicles and other property from known, flood-prone areas. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take quick action should flooding develop, including fleeing to higher ground.
Target Area:
Burke Mountains
