Caution: More showers and thunderstorms today potentially resulting in flooding issues and flash flooding. Rain bands could merge or be very slow moving, causing locally heavy rainfall.
Flooding of creeks, streams, and poor drainage areas may impact local roadways, causing closures or even washouts.

This Watch may be extended eastward towards the Sandhills later today. Additionally, local Flood Warnings and Advisories remain in effect.
A cold front will cross the region Monday, bringing another round of widespread showers and storms that could result in more localized flooding into Monday night.
