241 PM EDT Mon Apr 24 2017

... Flood Watch remains in effect until 8 PM EDT this evening...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of northwest North Carolina, southwest Virginia, and
southeast West Virginia, including the following areas, in
northwest North Carolina, Alleghany NC, Ashe, and Watauga. In
southwest Virginia, Bland, Carroll, Craig, Floyd, Giles,
Grayson, Montgomery, Pulaski, Smyth, Tazewell, and Wythe. In
southeast West Virginia, Mercer.

* Until 8 PM EDT this evening

* additional moderate rain may take place on the northern edge of
the rain shield, with an additional inch or so 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 duration and widespread nature of the heavy rainfall is
expected to result in significant rises and potential flooding
on area streams, with flooding also possible 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.
