…HEAVY RAINFALL AND FLASH FLOODING WILL BE POSSIBLE MONDAY AND
MONDAY NIGHT…

.A moist and unstable atmosphere will support the development of
tropical showers and a few thunderstorms capable of producing
locally heavy downpours Monday. One to three inches of rainfall,
with locally higher amounts, are forecast through mid week. With
already saturated grounds, this additional rainfall will quickly
run off, likely leading to rapid rises in local creeks and
streams, causing them to spill out of their banks.

…FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM LATE TONIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY
MORNING…

The National Weather Service in Raleigh has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for a portion of central North Carolina,
including the following counties, Anson, Cumberland, Harnett,
Hoke, Johnston, Lee, Montgomery, Moore, Richmond, Sampson,
Scotland, Stanly, and Wayne.

* Monday through Tuesday morning

* A line of tropical showers and storms indirectly associated with
sub-tropical cyclone Alberto will push into the area from the
South around midnight Monday morning. One to three inches of
rain will be possible across central North Carolina through mid
week, with locally higher amounts.

* After several weeks of intermittent rainfall, many areas already
have saturated ground. This will result in more efficient water
runoff as the tropical rains impact portions of central North
Carolina, enhancing the flash flooding threat.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

A flash flood watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
Monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should
flash flood warnings be issued.
