...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH MONDAY EVENING...

The Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of North Carolina, Virginia, and southeast West
  Virginia, including the following areas, in North Carolina,
  Alleghany NC, Ashe, Caswell, Rockingham, Stokes, Surry,
  Watauga, Wilkes, and Yadkin. In Virginia, Appomattox, Bedford,

  Franklin, Giles, Grayson, Halifax, Henry, Montgomery, Patrick,
  Pittsylvania, Pulaski, Roanoke, Smyth, Tazewell, and Wythe. In
  southeast West Virginia, Mercer.

* Through Monday evening

* Moderate to heavy rain will take place, with 1.5 to almost 4
  inches likely through Monday night. Locally higher amounts
  likely near the Blue Ridge, south of Roanoke, and east into the
  North Carolina Piedmont and neighboring Southside Virginia.

* The duration and widespread nature of the heavy rainfall is
  expected to result in rises and potential flooding on area
  streams, while flooding may also be possible along some main
  stem rivers on Monday or Tuesday. Additionally, heavier short
  term rainfall rates associated with bands of heavy rain
  showers could result in localized flash flooding along small
  streams and in urban areas. Saturated ground may also result
  in downed trees and rock or mud slides.

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.
