At 1013 PM EDT, Doppler radar was tracking a line of strong
thunderstorms along a line extending from 7 miles southwest of
Asheboro to 11 miles southeast of Lexington to near Linwood. Movement
was south at 10 mph.

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

Locations impacted include...
Lexington, Badin Lake, Linwood, Badin, Denton, Richfield, New London,
Eldorado, Gordontown and Fish Tales Marina.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Torrential rainfall is also occurring with these storms, and may lead
to localized flooding. Do not drive your vehicle through flooded
roadways.

Very heavy rain can be expected due to the slow movement of these
storms. Prolonged heavy rain will result in ponding of water on
roadways, standing water in low lying areas, and minor flooding of
creeks and streams. Drivers are urged to slow down and use extra
caution to avoid hydroplaning.
