...THE URBAN AND SMALL STREAM FLOOD ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL
845 PM EDT FOR CENTRAL WAKE COUNTY...

At 818 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms over Raleigh
were weakening as they drift southeast at 10 mph. The heaviest rain
will be ending by 830 PM. Urban and small stream flooding has been
reported several spotters around west and north Raleigh where radar
indicated 1.5 to 2.5 inches of rain fell between 645 PM and 815 PM.
RDU Airport reported 1.12 inches of rain earlier with these storms.

Minor flooding was occurring on many streets, especially in the low
lying areas and dips in the roads including Millbrook Road, Capital
Blvd., Wade Avenue, Ray Road, and Atlantic Avenue. This minor
flooding will quickly subside as the heavy rain ends.

However, motorists should be alert for minor flooding around the
city of Raleigh through 845 PM.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as
well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of floods and flash floods. If flash flooding is observed act
quickly. Move up to higher ground to escape flood waters. Do not stay
in areas subject to flooding when water begins rising.
