...AN AREA OF SHOWERS AND STRONG THUNDERSTORMS WILL AFFECT
SOUTHEASTERN PERSON...VANCE...EASTERN ORANGE...GRANVILLE...
NORTHEASTERN CHATHAM AND DURHAM COUNTIES UNTIL 815 PM EDT...

At 717 PM EDT, Doppler radar was tracking an area of showers and
strong thunderstorms along a line extending from near Oxford to near
Chapel Hill. Movement was north at 20 mph.

Wind gusts up to 40 mph will be possible with these storms.

Heavy rain and minor flooding and deadly cloud to ground lightning
will also be possible with these storms.

Locations impacted include...
Durham, Chapel Hill, Henderson, Oxford, Creedmoor, Carrboro, Butner,
Kittrell, Rougemont and Stem.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Seek shelter in a nearby building or vehicle. Wind gusts as high as
40 mph are capable of knocking down tree limbs 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.

Frequent cloud to ground lightning is occurring with these storms.
Lightning can strike 10 miles away from a thunderstorm. Seek a safe
shelter inside a building or vehicle.
