...AN AREA OF SHOWERS AND STRONG THUNDERSTORMS WILL AFFECT NORTHERN

At 701 PM EDT, Doppler radar was tracking an area of showers and
strong thunderstorms 10 miles southeast of Smithfield, moving
northeast at 10 mph.

Wind gusts up to 40 mph will be possible with this storm.

Heavy rain and minor flooding will also be possible with this storm.

Locations impacted include...
Goldsboro, Smithfield, Fremont, Micro, Selma, Pine Level, Kenly,
Princeton, Pikeville and Eureka.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Seek shelter in a nearby building or vehicle. Wind gusts as high as
