...A FLOOD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 715 AM EDT FOR ALAMANCE...
At 344 AM EDT, Doppler radar indicated the bulk of the moderate
rainfall was east of the warned area. However, another batch of
moderate rain across the Raleigh vicinity will move westward along
the highway 64 and I-40 corridor through 630 AM. This additional
rainfall may aggravate any minor flooding now occurring. An
additional half to one inch of rain is possible through 630 AM EDT.
Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.
Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you
can do so safely.
