…Moderate to heavy rain expected this weekend…

.A cold front will slowly cross the Appalachians this weekend
from the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys. Several waves of low
pressure will move northeast along the front resulting in
multiple periods of moderate to heavy rain. This rainfall, in
addition to snowmelt in the upper reaches of the Greenbrier and
James Rivers, may result in flooding.

The greatest river flood threat will be along the Greenbrier
River where confidence is increasing that minor to potentially
moderate flooding may occur Sunday to Monday. This will greatly
depend on the amount of rainfall and snowmelt which takes place.

…FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 7 PM EST THIS EVENING
THROUGH MONDAY MORNING…

The Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of Virginia and southeast West Virginia, including
the following areas, in Virginia, Alleghany VA, Bath,
Botetourt, Craig, and Rockbridge. In southeast West Virginia,
Eastern Greenbrier, Monroe, Summers, and Western Greenbrier.

* From 7 PM EST this evening through Monday morning

* Periods of moderate to heavy rainfall are expected. The
potential for over 2 inches of rain exists across the watch
area. The heaviest rainfall is expected tonight through
Sunday.

* Excessive rainfall, combined with an already saturated ground
and snowmelt, may lead to flooding along streams, creeks,
rivers and in low lying areas.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

Those living along the Greenbrier River should begin taking
precautions. There is still a snowpack in the upper reaches of
the basin. If all of this snow melts during the peak of this rain
event, this will greatly increase the chances for flooding.

The river level at Alderson is already half bank full from the
last rain event, which means it will not take as long to reach
flood stage if heavy rain occurs. Based on the latest forecast,
if flooding occurs on the Greenbrier River it would be on Sunday
and Monday.

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.
