Special Weather Statement

Statement as of 3:07 PM EDT on October 23, 2017

Expires 4:30 PM EDT on October 23, 2017


... An area of showers with heavy rain will affect
Pulaski... southwestern Giles... southwestern Floyd... Smyth...
Tazewell... Bland... Carroll... Wythe... Grayson and Mercer counties and
the city of Galax...

Until 430 PM EDT

An area of showers with embedded heavy rainfall rates moving from
south to north at 40 mph will be capable of producing one to two
inches of rain through 430 in some locations. This could be enough
to result in minor flooding of small streams and in low lying urban
areas with poor drainage. In addition, wind gusts in excess of 40
mph are possible, especially along ridges. This could down some
trees given the wet ground conditions.

Locations impacted include...
Bluefield...
Pulaski...
Wytheville...
Galax...
and Bland.

Do not drive your vehicle through flooded roadways. Slow down in
heavy rain due to limited visibilities and the possibility of
hydroplaning.
