Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 4:02 AM EDT on April 23, 2017

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on April 25, 2017


... Flash Flood Watch in effect from late tonight through Tuesday
morning...

The National Weather Service in Wilmington has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for all of southeast North Carolina and
northeast South Carolina.

* From late tonight through Tuesday morning

* rainfall associated with a developing low pressure system will
become widespread and heavy late tonight, and persist into early
Tuesday. Periods of very heavy rain will contribute to total
rainfall of 3 to 6 inches, with isolated higher amounts
possible.

* Grounds will become saturated as periods of heavy rainfall move
across the area. This has the potential to lead to flash
flooding, especially in locations with poor drainage such as
urban areas or in and around culverts. Excessive roadway ponding
is also likely, and at times some roads may become impassable,
especially if drainage ditches overflow onto roadways.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
