While the warning is in effect until 2:30 a.m., high water could be possible in certain areas until late morning. 

Authorities urge motorists to drive extra carefully.

At 11:20 p.m. Monday, Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms producing heavy rain across the area.

Between 1 and 2 inches of rain have fallen. The expected rainfall rate is 1 to 2 inches in two hours.

Flash flooding is ongoing or expected to begin shortly.

Flash flooding of small creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as well as other poor drainage and low-lying areas is expected.

Some locations that will experience flash flooding include Bailey, Nashville, Rocky Mount, Louisburg, Zebulon and other locations.

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood deaths occur in vehicles, according to local emergency management.
