Flash Flood Watch For the Mountains

Flash Flood Watch in effect for portions of the High Country on Friday

With an already saturated ground from recent rainfall and additional rain expected, the National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch across Ashe and Watauga counties in effect from Friday afternoon through Friday evening.

Most areas will not see flooding, but those that see repeated thunderstorms or storms that quickly produce heavy rain could see flooding especially in low-lying and poor drainage areas.

Please remember: TURN AROUND, DON’T DROWN. It is never a good idea to drive through standing water.
