...Heavy rain from the remnants of Sally could lead to flash flooding today through tomorrow morning...
...FLASH FLOOD WATCH NOW IN EFFECT FROM 8 AM EDT THIS MORNING THROUGH FRIDAY MORNING...
The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for
* A portion of eastern North Carolina, including the following areas, Greene, Lenoir, Martin and Pitt.
* From 8 AM EDT this morning through Friday morning
* Rainfall associated with Tropical Cyclone Sally will overspread the region this morning and become heavier through the day through tomorrow morning. A tropical airmass will lead to very efficient rainfall processes, which will result in storm total precipitation amounts of 2 to 4 inches across area, with isolated higher amounts likely. Runoff from this heavy rain will likely result in flash flooding across portions of Eastern NC.
* Rapid rises of streams and creeks are possible for areas where heavy rain falls for an extended period of time. Flooding of low-lying and poor drainage areas also possible.
A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to Flash Flooding. Flash Flooding is a very dangerous situation. You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
Motorists should not attempt to drive around barricades or drive cars through flooded areas.
