Episode Narrative A stalled frontal boundary combined with unseasonably high levels of atmospheric moisture brought widespread heavy rainfall to much of southside Virginia into the northwest piedmont of North Carolina from late December 31 through the early morning hours of January 1. Total rainfall amounts ranged from 1 to 3 inches in many areas, with locally higher amounts in excess of 4 inches. Due to antecedent wet conditions across much of the region, the majority of this rain (which fell over a short period of about 3 hours) ran off into local creeks and streams, prompting them to quickly leave their banks, as well as, prompted the flooding and subsequent closure of streets and roads.
Event Narrative Many steets were closed in Ridgeway due to flash flooding.
