...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH TUESDAY MORNING...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of western North Carolina, including the following
  areas, Avery, Buncombe, Graham, Haywood, Madison, Mitchell,
  Northern Jackson, Swain, and Yancey Counties.

* through Tuesday morning

* Expanding coverage of showers and thunderstorms will result in
  areas of heavy rainfall impacting the mountains tonight through
  Tuesday morning. Soils are nearly saturated across much of the
  region, and the additional heavy rainfall may cause flash
  flooding to develop very quickly.

* Residents in low-lying and flood prone areas will want to
  monitor nearby water levels very closely. Campers, hikers, and
  others involved in outdoor recreation activities must keep a
  close eye on nearby stream levels and be prepared to seek higher
  ground if flooding develops.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
Be especially cautious if venturing into areas of rugged terrain.
If heavy rain develops nearby, seek higher ground immediately.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued. Have a source of weather
information, such as NOAA Weather Radio, available at all times.
