Davie... southern Iredell... Mecklenburg... southeastern
Cleveland... and western Rowan counties in North
Carolina... plus Union... Chester and York counties in South
Carolina until 530 PM EDT...

At 428 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated strong thunderstorms along a

of York to 12 miles northeast of Newberry, and moving northeast at 45
mph.

Locations to be impacted include...

Wind gusts up to 45 mph and torrential rainfall rates up to 3 inches
per hour will be possible in these areas.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

roads. Water levels of small streams may also rise rapidly. Seek
higher ground if threatened by flood waters.

These storms may intensify, so be certain to monitor local radio and
TV stations, as well as local cable TV outlets for additional
information and possible warnings from the National Weather Service.
