* Flood Advisory for...
  Central Burke County in western North Carolina...

* Until 715 AM EDT Tuesday

* At 113 AM EDT, Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated
  heavy rain last evening has caused minor flooding in the advisory
  area.  Storm-total rainfall accumulations of 4-6 inches upstream
  on the Johns River caused rapid rises downstream allowing the
  river to exceed its banks causing minor flooding.

  experience minor flooding as upstream waters continue to flow
  downstream.  At 106 AM EDT the stage on the Johns River near
  Morganton was 15.6 feet, with further rising to near 16.0 feet
  expected through morning.  Minor flood stage is 12.0 feet.  At
  13.5 feet there will be some backwater effects on Sims Branch that
  flows into the river.  Johns River Road and a camping area on
  Lower Creek that flows into the river will start to flood. At 16.0
  feet flooding will develop or be ongoing along Johns River Loop
  Road, Old Johns River Road, and Valley View Circle.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

...PATCHY DENSE FOG WILL AFFECT THE NORTH CAROLINA PIEDMONT
THROUGH 9 AM EDT...

Although the atmosphere continues to dry this morning following
passage of a cold front yesterday, abundant near surface moisture
is lingering due to the recent heavy rainfall. This will allow fog
to form in piedmont areas near the Interstate 77 corridor, and the
fog could become dense in a few places. Visibility may be locally
reduced to less than one-quarter mile at times, and may change
rapidly over short distances.

Be prepared to encounter patchy dense fog if traveling around the
region this morning. Allow extra driving time and stopping
distance. Use low-beam headlights and fog lamps if you encounter
fog.
