Flood Watch

Flood Watch
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC
228 AM EDT Tue Apr 24 2018

...MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINFALL THIS MORNING MAY PRODUCE FLOODING
ACROSS PARTS OF THE WESTERN CAROLINAS AND NORTHEAST GEORGIA...

.A low pressure system approaching from the west early this
morning continues to pump abundant moisture into the southern
Appalachians and surrounding areas. Southeasterly winds ahead of
the system will wring out moderate to heavy rainfall across the
eastern slopes of the southern Appalachians and the adjacent
foothills. The duration of the rainfall may permit flooding along
streams, creeks, and main-stem rivers within the Watch area.

...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 AM EDT THIS 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.

* until 8 AM EDT this morning

* Abundant moisture ahead of a low pressure system slowly
  approaching from the west will yield moderate to heavy rainfall
  across the eastern slopes of the southern Appalachians and
  adjacent foothills early this morning. Additional rainfall
  amounts of 1 to 2 inches may fall on locations already saturated
  by some 2 to 4 inches of rain that has fallen over the past 24
  hours, with the greatest totals occurring across the eastern
  slopes of the extreme southern Appalachians from Clayton,
  Georgia to Brevard, North Carolina.

* 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 western 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.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.
