Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 2:32 PM EDT May. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch remains in effect through late tonight...

The Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of central North Carolina, including the following
areas, Alamance, Anson, Chatham, Cumberland, Davidson, Durham,
Edgecombe, Forsyth, Franklin, Granville, Guilford, Halifax,
Harnett, Hoke, Johnston, Lee, Montgomery, Moore, Nash, Orange,
person, Randolph, Richmond, Sampson, Scotland, Stanly, Vance,
wake, Warren, Wayne, and Wilson.

* Through late tonight

* numerous showers and storms will bring a threat of locally heavy
rainfall through tonight. As recent rains have produced
saturated soils across the area, any additional heavy rainfall
may lead to rapid runoff and flooding. Quick rises on creeks are
also possible. An additional 1 to 2 inches of rain is expected
today through tonight, with locally higher totals of 2 to 3
inches possible, particularly in locations that see showers and
storms move repeatedly over the same area.

* Heavy rainfall may lead to flooding, especially in urban and
poor drainage areas. Rapid rises on creeks and flooding of
drainage ditches are also possible.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts. Monitor later forecasts and be alert for
possible flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding
should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.

It only takes 6 to 12 inches of rapidly flowing water to float a
vehicle. Remember, never drive through areas where water covers
the Road. The water may be much deeper than it appears, and the
Road beneath could be washed away or weakened.




Special Statement
Issued: 3:57 PM EDT May. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Special Weather Statement for a intensifying thunderstorms this
afternoon and evening... affecting portions of Guilford... western
Chatham... Alamance... Forsyth... Randolph and Davidson counties until
500 PM EDT...

Thunderstorms will be spreading north and intensifying over the
northwestern Piedmont this afternoon and evening. There is the
potential for a few of these storms to produce damaging winds and
possibly tornadoes.

Locations impacted include...
Greensboro, Winston-Salem, High Point, Burlington, Asheboro,
Lexington, Graham, Randleman, Siler City and North Carolina zoo.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Locally heavy rain is likely as well, which will reduce visibility
and result in ponding of water on roadways. Evening commuters are
urged to slow down and use extra caution to avoid hydroplaning,
especially in urban areas where prolonged heavy rain can quickly
lead to flooding.

As storms will be intensifying, be certain to monitor local radio
stations and available television stations for additional
information and possible warnings from the National Weather Service.


A Tornado Watch remains in effect until midnight EDT for central
North Carolina.
