ALAMANCE...PERSON... ORANGE...EASTERN RANDOLPH...CHATHAM AND DURHAM
COUNTIES UNTIL 830 PM EST...

At 655 PM EST, Doppler radar was tracking a line of heavy rain
showers and strong thunderstorms along a line extending from near
Monroeton to near Seagrove. Movement was east at 35 mph.

Wind gusts up to 50 mph will be possible with these storms.

Heavy rain and minor flooding will also be possible with these
storms.

Locations impacted include...
Durham, Chapel Hill, Burlington, Graham, Roxboro, Hillsborough,
Pittsboro, Siler City, Carrboro and Mebane.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Seek shelter in a nearby building or vehicle. Wind gusts as high as
50 mph are capable of knocking down small or weakened trees and
blowing around trash cans, potted plants, lawn furniture and other
light outdoor objects.

Locally heavy rain will quickly reduce visibility and result in
ponding of water on roadways, standing water in low lying areas, and
minor flooding of creeks, streams, and areas of poor drainage.
Drivers 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.
