(WGHP) — Thunderstorms will roll through the Piedmont on Monday morning, and flash flooding is expected, according to a flash flood watch released by the National Weather Service.

The flash flood watch goes into effect at 12 a.m. and ends at 10 a.m.

Flash flooding is likely in the following counties:

  • Alamance County
  • Anson County
  • Chatham County
  • Cumberland County
  • Davidson County
  • Durham County
  • Edgecombe County
  • Forsyth County
  • Franklin County
  • Granville County
  • Guilford County
  • Halifax County
  • Harnett County
  • Hoke County
  • Johnston County
  • Lee County
  • Montgomery County
  • Moore County
  • Nash County
  • Orange County
  • Person County
  • Randolph County
  • Richmond County
  • Sampson County
  • Scotland County
  • Stanly County
  • Vance County
  • Wake County
  • Warren County
  • Wayne County
  • Wilson County

Creeks, rivers and streams may flood due to excessive runoff.

Flooding may also happen in poor drainage and urban areas.

The first week of 2022 will bring winter temperatures and perhaps some winter weather to the Piedmont as well.

Cold air will move into the Piedmont on Sunday night while a low-pressure system will move to our south. The low will bring rain back into the Piedmont.

As the cold air overtakes the rain, there’s a chance the moisture could end as a rain/snow mix or change completely to snow across the northern Piedmont.

Given our extremely warm December, the ground is very warm.

Little to no snow accumulation is expected. If we do see accumulating snow, it would be on the grass and some elevated surfaces.

No travel troubles are anticipated at this time.
