640 PM EDT MON OCT 23 2017

...THE URBAN AND SMALL STREAM FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL
900 PM EDT FOR FORSYTH AND DAVIDSON COUNTIES...

At 639 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to
thunderstorms. This will cause urban and small stream flooding in the
advisory area. Up to one inch of rain has already fallen.

Additional rainfall of a half to one inch is expected over the area.
This additional rain will result in minor flooding. The threat for
heavy rain will decrease after 7 PM.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as
well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.

Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you
can do so safely.

* Flood Advisory for...
  Cabarrus County in the Piedmont of North Carolina...
  Southeastern Iredell County in the Piedmont of North Carolina...
  Northeastern Mecklenburg County in the Piedmont of North
  Carolina...
  Rowan County in the Piedmont of North Carolina...

* Until 1145 PM EDT Monday

* At 542 PM EDT, Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated
  heavy rain due to thunderstorms moving through the area. Very
  intense rainfall rates of 2-3 inches per hour are impacting
  Huntersville, Mooresville, and east Charlotte and now entering
  Harrisburg, Concord, and Kannapolis.  This may cause minor urban
  flooding in the advisory area.

* This advisory is primarily to give drivers advanced notice of
  urban-related flooding, including poor-drainage areas, low-lying
  areas, flood-prone parking lots, underpasses, and intersections.
  The rainfall rates with these storms are very intense and drainage
  systems in major towns and cities may be overwhelmed in a very
  short period of time.

* Significant rises are expected on area streams, but streams should
  stay within their banks.  Very small creeks and ditches may,
  however, be overwhelmed by the rainfall.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
  Kannapolis, Downtown Concord, Northeast Charlotte, West Concord,
  Harrisburg, Mt Pleasant, Reedy Creek Park, Charlotte Motor
  Speedway, Mooresville, China Grove, Salisbury, UNC Charlotte and
  Midland.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Heavy rainfall will cause ponding of water in urban areas, streets
and underpasses, as well as other poor drainage areas and low lying
spots. Rapid rises on small creeks and streams will also occur,
possibly flooding low water crossings and farmland. Do not attempt to
travel across flooded roads. Turn around, dont drown.

Please report flood water flowing over roads or threatening property,
or landslides to the National Weather Service by calling toll free,
1, 800, 2 6 7, 8 1 0 1, or by posting on our Facebook page, or Tweet
it using hashtag nwsgsp. your message should describe the event and
