... Flood Watch remains in effect through Thursday morning...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of North Carolina and Virginia, including the
following areas, in North Carolina, Alleghany NC, Ashe,
Stokes, Surry, Watauga, Wilkes, and Yadkin. In Virginia,
Alleghany VA, Amherst, Bath, Bedford, Botetourt, Carroll,
Craig, Floyd, Franklin, Grayson, Henry, Montgomery, Patrick,
Pulaski, Roanoke, Rockbridge, and Wythe.

* Through Thursday morning

* 1 to 2 inches of rain are expected, highest near and along the
Blue Ridge. As the ground is still frozen and saturated, much
of the expected rainfall will run off into local streams and
creeks since the ground is frozen or still saturated from
rainfall last weekend.

* Small streams and creeks may overflow their banks. Areas of
poor drainage will also be prone to flooding, as well as roads
near creeks. Portions of the Greenbrier, Roanoke and Dan
rivers may rise to action or flood stage levels late this
week.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
