Southeastern North Carolina and far northeast South Carolina:

Additional 3 to 6 inches of rain...with isolated maximum of 8
inches possible...with storm total accumulations of 30 to
40 inches likely.  These rainfall amounts will produce
catastrophic flash flooding and prolonged significant river
flooding.

Central and Western North Carolina...far northern South Carolina and
far southwest Virginia:

Additional 5 to 10 inches of rain, with storm total accumulations of
15 to 20 inches likely.  These rainfall amounts will produce flash
flooding and an elevated risk for landslides in western North
Carolina and far southwest Virginia.

West-central Virginia:

2 to 4 inches, isolated 6 inches.  This rainfall will result in
flash flooding and potentially lead to some river flooding.

TORNADOES:  A few tornadoes remain possible across southeast North
Carolina and northeastern South Carolina today and tonight.
