    NCZ057-071-072-082-122315- Rowan NC-Union NC-Mecklenburg NC-Cabarrus NC- 529 PM EST FRI JAN 12 2018 ...AN AREA OF HEAVY RAIN WILL IMPACT CABARRUS...EASTERN MECKLENBURG...SOUTHEASTERN ROWAN AND UNION COUNTIES UNTIL 615 PM EST... At 527 PM EST, Doppler radar indicated the leading edge of an area of heavy rain along a line extending from 6 miles southwest of Kannapolis to 9 miles east of Uptown Charlotte to 9 miles northeast of Lancaster, and moving northeast at 40 mph. Very weak rotation has been noted along this line, and it is not entirely out of the question that a very brief funnel cloud may form, though the environment is not supportive of tornado touchdowns. Brief gusty winds may accompany areas where the line breaks temporarily, and some limbs or small trees may blow down. Locations to be impacted include... Kannapolis, Downtown Concord, Monroe, Salisbury, West Concord, Matthews, Mint Hill, Indian Trail, Stallings and Unionville. Wind gusts up to 40 mph and torrential rainfall rates up to 3 inches per hour will be possible in these areas. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... Torrential rainfall may flood areas with poor drainage, such as ditches and underpasses. Avoid these areas and do not cross flooded roads. Water levels of small streams may also rise rapidly. Seek higher ground if threatened by flood waters. && LAT...LON 3550 8030 3519 8051 3516 8044 3518 8037 3517 8036 3519 8028 3499 8030 3481 8057 3482 8073 3515 8073 3546 8077 3574 8045 3572 8034 3571 8032 3568 8033 3558 8021 3555 8021 3551 8018 TIME...MOT...LOC 2227Z 227DEG 35KT 3543 8070 3519 8068 3483 8068 $$
