Flood Watch

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

...RAINFALL WINDING DOWN BUT FLOODING STILL POSSIBLE IN AND NEAR
THE SOUTHERN APPALACHIANS THIS MORNING...

.A low pressure system approaching from the west this morning is
poised to transition through the piedmont of the western Carolinas
later today. Southeasterly upslope flow may still wring out
moderate rain showers across the eastern escarpment of the
mountains, but widespread flooding is becoming less likely in some
areas. The Watch is being cancelled for locations farther from the
mountians across Georgia and South Carolina, but continued until 8
AM for eastern mountain locations and the immediately adjacent
foothills.

...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, Habersham and Rabun. 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,
  Greenville Mountains, Oconee Mountains, and Pickens Mountains.

* until 8 AM EDT this morning

* Although rainfall rates are diminishing around the region,
  locally moderate to heavy rain showers may still fall on
  locations that have received 3 to 6 inches of rain in the past
  24 hours. Runoff on these saturated soil conditions may yet
  produce flooding in low-lying and flood prone areas in and near
  the eastern escarpment of the North Carolina mountains.

* Flooding remains most likely along the upper reaches of the
  French Broad River and its associated tributaries. Flooding will
  also be possible along the western Catawba River chain in the
  North Carolina foothills.

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.
