Flash Flood Watch Tonight and Wednesday



There's a lot of concern about flooding tomorrow as heavy rain is expected to hit the area.
 
While small streams and creeks are likely to spill over their banks, it appears the Shenandoah River will not according to National Weather Service predictions.
 
On the North Fork the NWS has water levels reaching over 15-feet at Strasburg.  That's five feet over action stage, but just a touch below official flood stage.  The weather service does not expect crests on the South Fork to pose any issues at either Lynwood or Luray.
 
The are is under a flash flood watch through tomorrow evening.
