Debris, standing water, part of Monday a.m. commute

January 25, 2010 4:06:29 AM PST
A weather system that brought strong winds and heavy rain overnight wrapped up before Monday morning's rush hour but left remnants accross the Triangle.

Standing water and road debris could cause problems in Durham and Raleigh. On Wake Forest Road in Raleigh, mud is partially blocking the road. The ground is so soaked it became loose and slid onto the roadway.

The North Carolina Highway Patrol also said parts of I-40 experienced flash flooding, which caused a number of minor wrecks. That standing water may still be around during Monday morning's commute, so drivers should be careful.

Despite the early morning weather, ABC11 Eyewitness News Accuweather Meteorologist Glenn WIlley says the rest of Monday will be clear.

"Later today expect sunshine with afternoon temperatures in the upper 50s to low 60s," Willey says.

"Temperatures overnight will dip into the 30s under a few clouds," Willey adds. "Tomorrow looks pretty good but cooler with highs in the upper 40s and low 50s."

Wind advisories and flash flood warnings remained in effect Monday morning for some of the ABC11 viewing area. For a complete list of counties under an advisory or warning, click here.
