Georgia, Franklin

Areal Flood Watch

Statement as of 3:30 PM EDT on April 22, 2018

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on April 24, 2018


... Flood Watch remains in effect from midnight EDT tonight
through Tuesday morning...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of northeast Georgia, western North Carolina, and
upstate South Carolina, including the following areas, in
northeast Georgia, Franklin, Habersham, Hart, Rabun, and
Stephens. In western North Carolina, Avery, Buncombe, Burke
mountains, Caldwell mountains, eastern McDowell, eastern Polk,
greater Burke, greater Caldwell, greater Rutherford,
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.

* From midnight EDT tonight through Tuesday morning

* abundant moisture ahead of a low pressure system slowly
approaching from the west will yield heavy rainfall across the
eastern slopes of the southern Appalachians and adjacent
foothill areas tonight through at least Monday night. Rainfall
totals of 3 to 4 inches are expected in many of these
locations, with localized 4 to 6 inch amounts in the most
upslope preferred areas of the eastern slopes of the
mountains.

* Flooding may develop along streams, creeks, and main Stem
rivers, especially through the day on Monday. Flooding is most
likely along the upper reaches of the French Broad River and
associated tributaries. This Flood Watch may need to be
expanded into adjacent Piedmont areas if rainfall numbers are
adjusted up any further. Additionally, 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.
