Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 8:18 PM EDT on April 24, 2017

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on April 25, 2017


... Flood Watch remains in effect until 8 am EDT Tuesday...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of North Carolina and Virginia, including the
following areas, in North Carolina, Caswell, Rockingham,
Stokes, Surry, Wilkes, and Yadkin. In Virginia, Amherst,
Appomattox, Bedford, Botetourt, Campbell, Charlotte, Franklin,
Halifax, Henry, Patrick, Pittsylvania, Roanoke, and
Rockbridge.

* Until 8 am EDT Tuesday

* light to moderate rain will take place, with an additional 1 to
2 inches of rain possible through tonight, in some cases this
rain falling on-top of the 2 to 4 inches of rain that has
already occurred. The heaviest rain thus far has fallen south of
Roanoke along the Blue Ridge and into North Carolina. This
particular region will be most susceptible to flooding.

* The duration and widespread nature of the heavy rainfall is
expected to result in minor to moderate rises and potential
flooding on area streams, with flooding also expected along
some main Stem rivers into Tuesday. Additionally, heavier short
term rainfall rates associated with bands of heavy rain showers
could result in localized flash flooding along small streams and
in urban areas. Saturated ground may also result in downed
trees and rock or mud slides. Water will likely inundate poor
drainage areas.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
