733 PM EDT MON OCT 23 2017

The National Weather Service in Greenville-Spartanburg has issued a

* Flood Warning for...
McDowell County in western North Carolina...
Mitchell County in western North Carolina...
Western Caldwell County in western North Carolina...
Avery County in western North Carolina...
Yancey County in western North Carolina...
Burke County in western North Carolina...

* Until 130 AM EDT Tuesday

* At 723 PM EDT, stream gauges indicated ongoing flooding at several
locations in the northern mountains and foothills, including the
North Toe River at Spruce Pine and at Frank, along with Johns
River at Arneys Store. Although heavy rainfall has ended, it will
be some time before the water recedes. Three to five inches of
rain have fallen since last night. Numerous roads are impassable
across the area due to floodwaters.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Morganton, Marion, Spruce Pine, Burnsville, Newland, Valdese,
Gamewell, Drexel, Glen Alpine and Old Fort.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Most flood deaths occur in vehicles. Do not attempt to cross
water-covered roadways, bridges, or low-level crossings. It is
not worth the risk. Please TURN AROUND, DON'T DROWN.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

In hilly and mountainous terrain, there are hundreds of low-water
crossings which can be dangerous in heavy rain. Low-water crossings
can be submerged by flood waters quickly and without warning. Never
attempt to travel across flooded crossings. Find an alternate route.
It takes only a few inches of swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles
away.

First Alert Weather Forecast

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

* Tornado Watch in Effect
* First Alert Day Today
Rain / Severe Weather Risk

A Tornado Watch has been issued for the entire WBTV viewing area through 9pm this evening.

A First Alert Day has been issued for today as a strong cold front is forecast to cross the Carolinas. The best chance for thunderstorms will arrive during the afternoon and evening hours. Much of the WBTV viewing area is under a "slight risk" for severe weather. The biggest threat looks to be heavy rain and gusty winds, however, an isolated tornado can't completely be ruled out. We will certainly keep an eye on it for you. Today will be much cooler as well with afternoon readings in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

After the front clears the region this evening, we'll begin to dry out and clear out as lows fall back to near 50°.  Plenty of sunshine is in the Tuesday forecast with highs in the low 70s.  By Wednesday, we'll start in the upper 30s to lower 40s with highs only recovering to the low 60s during the afternoon. The same will be true on Thursday! Fall weather isn't far away, but we have to get through some rain first.

By Friday we'll warm back to near 70° as sunshine holds strong.

Hope you have a great week!
