Statement as of 2:28 AM EDT on April 24, 2018

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on April 24, 2018


... 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, Elbert, Franklin, Habersham, Hart, Rabun,
and Stephens. In western North Carolina, Avery, Buncombe,
Burke mountains, Caldwell mountains, eastern McDowell, eastern

Henderson, Macon, McDowell Mountains, Mitchell, northern
Jackson, Polk mountains, Rutherford mountains, southern
Jackson, Transylvania, and Yancey. In upstate South Carolina,
Anderson, greater Greenville, greater Oconee, greater Pickens,
Greenville mountains, Oconee mountains, Pickens mountains, and
Spartanburg.

* Until 8 am EDT this morning

* abundant moisture ahead of a low pressure system slowly
approaching from the west will yield moderate to heavy rainfall
across the eastern slopes of the southern Appalachians and
adjacent foothills early this morning. Additional rainfall
amounts of 1 to 2 inches may fall on locations already saturated
by some 2 to 4 inches of rain that has fallen over the past 24
hours, with the greatest totals occurring across the eastern
slopes of the extreme southern Appalachians from Clayton,
Georgia to Brevard, North Carolina.

* Flooding may develop along streams, creeks, and main Stem
rivers. Flooding is most likely along the upper reaches of the
French Broad River and its associated tributaries. Flooding will
also be quite possible along the Saluda River in upstate South
Carolina as well as the western Catawba river chain in the
North Carolina foothills. Flooding from the heavy rainfall could
linger into Tuesday or beyond, especially along any main Stem
rivers that flood.

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.
