Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 2:08 PM EDT on July 03, 2015

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on July 04, 2015


... Flash Flood Watch now in effect through Saturday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* portions of southwest Virginia and West Virginia... including
the following areas... in southwest Virginia... Buchanan and
Dickenson. In West Virginia... Boone... Clay... Fayette...
Kanawha... Logan... McDowell... Mingo... Nicholas... Raleigh...
Roane and Wyoming.

* Through Saturday morning

* showers and storms will increase in coverage this afternoon.
While the coverage of showers and storms will decrease later
this evening... any shower or storm will produce downpours
through the overnight hours.

* Due to the recent rounds of showers and storms... the ground is
wetter than normal. That allows for faster runoff into small
streams and creeks. Rains of 1 to 2 inches in less than a few
hours could cause vulnerable streams to flood. Local rain
amounts of 3 inches or more would cause more serious flash
flooding.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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

Those living along flood prone creeks... plus County and state
officials... should monitor water levels frequently during any
heavier showers today and this evening. Be prepared to take
action should water levels rise quickly... or a Flash Flood
Warning is posted.

Also... being the start of the Independence day Holiday weekend...
travelers need to slow down during any heavier rain. Do not drive
through water flowing across roads... or into flooded underpasses.
