…FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH THIS EVENING…
The Flash Flood Watch continues for
* A portion of northwest North Carolina, including the following
areas, Alleghany NC, Ashe, and Watauga.
* Through this evening
* Abundant tropical moisture across the region will result in
additional showers and thunderstorms developing by this
afternoon. Rainfall totals could reach 1 to 2 inches in spots
with high rainfall rates leading to flash flooding.
* Flash flooding will be possible in areas of torrential rainfall.
Flash flooding of streams and creeks may develop very quickly
under these circumstances. In addition, landslides will be
possible especially near steeper slopes and in locations more
prone to past landslide events.
A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION.
Remember…TURN AROUND…DON`T DROWN!
You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
