Flash Flood Watch in effect for central North Carolina

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- We're in First Alert Mode as parts of central North Carolina are under a Flash Flood Watch until Thursday.

The watch lasts through Thursday night and effects Alamance, Chatham, Lee, Cumberland, Hoke, Moore, Harnett, Robeson and Scotland counties. Most of North Carolina saw significant rain on Tuesday and it's going to be another soaker on Wednesday and Thursday.

Some of the heaviest rain will fall late Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday night, but we could see rain across the ABC11 viewing area at any time throughout the next two days. A slow-moving storm system located in southwestern Georgia is unloading on the southern Appalachians as well as the Piedmont.

A Flash Flood Watch means flooding is possible and a Flash Flood Warning means flooding is happening and action is needed.

Wednesday is the coolest day of the next seven days as temperatures will stay in the 50s and 60s all day long.
