...ADDITIONAL SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THIS AFTERNOON WILL KEEP
THE THREAT OF FLASH FLOODING THROUGH THIS EVENING...

.SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEVELOP THIS AFTERNOON
AHEAD OF AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT, WHICH WILL PUSH THROUGH THE
AREA TONIGHT. RAINFALL RATES ON THE ORDER OF 1 TO 2 INCHES PER
HOUR WILL BE POSSIBLE IN ANY HEAVY DOWNPOUR. GIVEN WET SOILS AND
ELEVATED STREAM FLOWS FROM RAINFALL OVER THE PAST FEW DAYS, HEAVY
DOWNPOURS COULD LEAD TO ADDITIONAL FLOODING AND FLASH FLOODING. IN
ADDITION, RUNOFF FROM THE PAST FEW DAYS OF HEAVY RAINFALL WILL
ALLOW FOR CONTINUED FLOODING ALONG THE CATAWBA RIVER IN THE NORTH
CAROLINA FOOTHILLS AND PIEDMONT THROUGH AT LEAST TONIGHT. ISOLATED
LANDSLIDES WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE ALONG THE STEEPER SLOPES.

...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 9 PM EDT THIS
EVENING...

CAROLINA, INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING AREAS, IN PIEDMONT NORTH

* UNTIL 9 PM EDT THIS EVENING

* ADDITIONAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF ONE HALF TO 1 INCH, WITH
LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS UP TO 2 INCHES ARE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE
REGION THROUGH TONIGHT. THIS COULD CAUSE ADDITIONAL FLASH
FLOODING TO DEVELOP VERY QUICKLY, ESPECIALLY IN AREAS THAT
HAVE SEEN VERY HEAVY RAINFALL SINCE FRIDAY, AND ALSO IN URBAN
AREAS.

* FLOODING IS ONGOING ACROSS PORTIONS OF WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA,
ESPECIALLY ALONG THE CATAWBA RIVER IN THE FOOTHILLS AND
WESTERN PIEDMONT. THIS FLOODING WILL LIKELY CONTINUE THROUGH
AT LEAST TONIGHT. ADDITIONAL HEAVY RAINFALL MAY WORSEN THE
FLOODING IN THESE AREAS. OTHER AREAS COULD ALSO SEE STREAMS
RISE QUICKLY, WITH SOME COMING OUT OF THEIR BANKS. THE
POSSIBILITY OF ISOLATED LANDSLIDE ACTIVITY WILL REMAIN
ELEVATED ALONG AND NEAR THE BLUE RIDGE ESCARPMENT, ESPECIALLY
ACROSS THE NORTHERN MOUNTAINS, WHERE WIDESPREAD RAINFALL
AMOUNTS IN EXCESS OF 5 INCHES HAVE OCCURRED SINCE FRIDAY.
