...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 8 PM EDT THIS EVENING
THROUGH TUESDAY MORNING...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of northeast Georgia, western North Carolina, and
upstate South Carolina, including the following areas, in
northeast Georgia, Rabun. In western North Carolina, Avery,
Buncombe, Burke Mountains, Caldwell Mountains, Eastern
McDowell, Eastern Polk, Graham, Greater Burke, Greater
Caldwell, Greater Rutherford, Haywood, Henderson, Macon,
Madison, McDowell Mountains, Mitchell, Northern Jackson, Polk
Mountains, Rutherford Mountains, Southern Jackson, Swain,
Transylvania, and Yancey. In upstate South Carolina,
Greenville Mountains, Oconee Mountains, and Pickens Mountains.

* from 8 PM EDT this evening through Tuesday morning

* Abundant tropical moisture will arrive over the western
Carolinas and northeast Georgia tonight and persist through the
early part of the week. Rainfall totals around the region this
week will likely reach or exceed 3 to 6 inches, with some
locations along the eastern and southern slopes of the southern
Appalachians seeing 6 to 8 inches. Locally heavier rainfall will
be possible in locations that see repeated rounds of
thunderstorms where rainfall rates could reach 1 to 2 inches
per hour in the heaviest downpours. This heavy rain will fall on
ground already saturated by rainfall over the past 7 to 10
days.

* Flash flooding of streams and creeks could develop very
quickly under these circumstances. Landslides will be quite
possible, especially in mountainous terrain known to be prone
to landslides, and even along some steep slopes where
landslides have not occurred for many years. Main stem river
flooding will be quite likely as well, especially along rivers
in the southern and central North Carolina mountains such as
the French Broad River, the Tuckasegee River, and the Little
Tennessee River.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
Make plans now to avoid travel during the peak of the heavy
rainfall. Also have plans on where to flee to higher ground if
flash flooding affects your location.

Rainfall of more than five inches in similar storms has been
associated with an increased risk of landslides and rockslides.
If you live on a mountainside or in a cove at the base of a
mountain, especially near a stream, be ready to leave in advance
of the storm or as quickly as possible should rising water,
moving earth, or rocks threaten. Consider postponing travel on
mountain roads during the period of heavy rainfall.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.

Carolina, Aiken, Bamberg, Barnwell, Calhoun, Chesterfield,
Clarendon, Edgefield, Fairfield, Kershaw, Lancaster, Lee,
Lexington, McCormick, Newberry, Orangeburg, Richland, Saluda,

* From midnight EDT tonight through Monday evening.

* Tropical moisture will stream north into the region tonight
into Memorial Day, resulting in showers and thunderstorms
capable of producing very heavy rain with high rainfall rates.
Expect widespread rainfall amounts of one to two inches
through Monday, with higher local amounts up to 3 to 4 inches
possible, especially across the eastern Midlands. The heaviest
rainfall is expected late tonight into Monday morning. This
heavy rain, combined with saturated grounds from recent
rainfall, provides an enhanced threat of flooding. Flash
flooding near creeks, streams, poor drainage areas, and some
urban areas is possible.

* Motorists and persons engaged in outdoor activities should be
especially careful.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION.

Do not attempt to drive on flooded roads. It takes little water
to move a vehicle off the road and into deeper water. Also, the
road bed may not be intact under flood waters.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.

* Flash flooding of streams and creeks could develop very

possible, especially in mountainous terrain known to be prone
to landslides, and even along some steep slopes where
landslides have not occurred for many years. Main stem river
flooding will be quite likely as well, especially along rivers
in the southern and central North Carolina mountains such as
the French Broad River, the Tuckasegee River, and the Little
Tennessee River.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
Make plans now to avoid travel during the peak of the heavy
rainfall. Also have plans on where to flee to higher ground if
flash flooding affects your location.

Rainfall of more than five inches in similar storms has been
associated with an increased risk of landslides and rockslides.
If you live on a mountainside or in a cove at the base of a
mountain, especially near a stream, be ready to leave in advance
of the storm or as quickly as possible should rising water,
moving earth, or rocks threaten. Consider postponing travel on
mountain roads during the period of heavy rainfall.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.

* Flash Flood Watch in effect

If you're heading out this evening, this may be one of the driest periods of the next week. There could still be a few scattered showers but overall, it doesn't look like widespread rain coverage. If you're going to be at the Coca Cola 600, there's a 30% chance for a shower so keep your fingers crossed that any cells will steer clear of the race.

Unfortunately, Memorial Day is looking like the wettest day of the long weekend. As Alberto makes landfall along the Gulf Coast (likely the Florida Panhandle), moisture will head up the east coast. For us, that means the possibility of rain at any time from morning till night. There could be pockets of heavy rain and even a thunderstorm or two. A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for most of the area, with the exception of Ashe and Watauga Co. 

After that, everything will depend on the track of Alberto as it moves north. We will be unsettled all week and could pick up a few more inches of rain by the time all is said and done. Temperatures will be in the low to mid 80s, with high humidity. 

Have a good Memorial Day! Thank you to all who have served our country. We may never quite understand how much you sacrificed, but we appreciate you and the freedom we have because of you.
