* recent thunderstorms have saturated the soil over a large
portion of central North Carolina. Disturbances rotating around
a large upper trough, will combine with a deep southerly flow
and low level boundaries to produce additional rounds of
thunderstorms today through Tuesday night. Rainfall amounts of 2
to 4 inches are expected, with locally 5 inches possible where
storms repeat or train over the same areas. While the risk of
flash flooding will be greatest during the afternoon and evening
hours both today and Tuesday, at least some threat will persist
into the nighttime hours as storms persist past midnight. The
main areas of concern will be urban areas and flood prone areas,
but rural areas that see repeat thunderstorms may have flash
flooding develop as well.

* Flash flooding can develop quickly in urban, and hilly to low-
lying and flood prone areas especially, along creeks and
streams.

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.
