...AN AREA OF HEAVY RAIN WILL IMPACT CABARRUS...EASTERN
MECKLENBURG...SOUTHEASTERN ROWAN AND UNION COUNTIES UNTIL 615 PM
EST...

At 527 PM EST, Doppler radar indicated the leading edge of an area of
heavy rain along a line extending from 6 miles southwest of
Kannapolis to 9 miles east of Uptown Charlotte to 9 miles northeast
of Lancaster, and moving northeast at 40 mph.

Very weak rotation has been noted along this line, and it is not
entirely out of the question that a very brief funnel cloud may
form, though the environment is not supportive of tornado
touchdowns. Brief gusty winds may accompany areas where the line
breaks temporarily, and some limbs or small trees may blow down.

Locations to be impacted include...
Kannapolis, Downtown Concord, Monroe, Salisbury, West Concord,
Matthews, Mint Hill, Indian Trail, Stallings and Unionville.

Wind gusts up to 40 mph and torrential rainfall rates up to 3 inches
per hour will be possible in these areas.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Torrential rainfall may flood areas with poor drainage, such as
ditches and underpasses. Avoid these areas and do not cross flooded
roads. Water levels of small streams may also rise rapidly. Seek
higher ground if threatened by flood waters.
