RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – It is a CBS 17 Storm Team “Alert Day” due to it being an active weather day across central North Carolina. Some strong storms, flooding, gusty winds, and some snow will be with us Monday morning and afternoon.
Heavy rain with embedded thunderstorms moved into central North Carolina this morning and caused flash flood warnings through 9 a.m. in several counties.

The rest of the day will be windy. A Wind Advisory is in effect until 4 p.m. as northerly wind speeds will be sustained between 15 and 25 miles per hour and gusts up to 45 mph. RDU recorded a wind gust of 49 mph after 7 a.m.
Winds combined with saturated grounds could cause trees to uproot and unsecured objects to be blown around.
Temperatures will fall throughout the day allowing leftover moisture to turnover into snow mainly areas north of US-64.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in place until 4 p.m. – Granville, Person, and Mecklenburg Counties. Travel in these locations will be tricky at times. Slippery conditions and patchy ice will be possible on some roads, so take it easy!
All snow should end by 4 p.m. and we’ll even see some sunshine before sunset. The big story tonight will be the freezing temperatures. Lows will drop into the 20s.
