The National Weather Service in Raleigh has issued a Flash Flood Watch for Moore County.
The watch begins Thursday morning through 8 p.m. Friday. A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts.
“Remnants of Sally will bring widespread heavy rain and a flooding threat to Central NC Thursday through Friday,” said the alert.
The watch was also issued for Alamance, Anson, Chatham, Cumberland, Davidson, Durham, Edgecombe, Forsyth, Franklin, Granville, Guilford, Halifax, Harnett, Hoke, Johnston, Lee, Montgomery, Nash, Orange, Person, Randolph, Richmond, Sampson, Scotland, Stanly, Vance, Wake, Warren, Wayne and Wilson counties.
“As the remnants of Sally move east-northeast through the region, periods of moderate to heavy rain will begin on Thursday and will continue through Friday afternoon, before tapering Friday evening,” the alert said. “Storm total rainfall amounts of 3 to 6 inches, with locally higher amounts will lead to a threat of flooding in the watch area.”
We could see “rapid rises of water, flooded road, and flooding of structures in low lying areas near streams.”
