National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC
408 AM EDT Sun Apr 23 2017

...Heavy Rainfall Expected Across Western North Carolina through
Monday...

.An area of upper level low pressure and associated cold front
will slowly approach the region from the Tennessee Valley today,
then pass south of our area tonight into Monday. This will pull
abundant moisture and lift into the region, resulting in several
periods of showers and thunderstorms today through at least
Monday morning.

...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.
