Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 3:35 PM EDT on August 22, 2014

Expires 1:00 AM EDT on August 23, 2014


... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until 1 am EDT Saturday...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of southwest Virginia and southeast West Virginia...
including the following areas... in southwest Virginia...
Bland... Giles... Montgomery... Pulaski... Smyth... Tazewell and
Wythe. In southeast West Virginia... Greenbrier... Mercer...
Monroe and Summers.

* Until 1 am EDT Saturday

* several rounds of showers and thunderstorms are expected this
evening and tonight. Rainfall of 1 to locally 3 inches is
possible... the higher amounts occurring where storms pass
repeatedly over the same area. If rainfall amounts exceed 2
inches in an hour or less... flash flooding will occur.

* The ground has been moistened by a wetter than normal August.
This has allowed streams to return to normal or slightly above
normal... especially across southern West Virginia and
southwestern Virginia. Heavy rainfall today will likely cause
streams to rise more... and if the heavy rain falls in a short
enough period of time... flash flooding will occur.

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.
