WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE PIEDMONT TRIAD:

We have a major flooding concern here in the Piedmont to deal with over the weekend. Saturday and Sunday will send incredibly heavy rain our way. Late Saturday, the southern Piedmont is ground zero for a major flooding threat, on Sunday, that threat will shift toward the Foothills.

Wind: Winds will peak at about 20-40 mph at times Saturday, and Sunday. Locally higher gusts are possible

Rain: The rain will continue to increase in coverage and intensity Saturday night & Sunday. Generally, our area should plan on 5 - 10 inches, but more than 10 inches of rain is possible in the southern Piedmont and in the Foothills.

Flooding: Flooding will be severe in some areas. Especially the southern Piedmont on Saturday, and the Foothills on Sunday.
