A Flood Watch has been issued by the National Weather Service ahead of heavy rain that is expected to cause flooding over Eastern North Carolina through Monday evening. The watch remains in effect until 8:00 p.m.

Rainfall amounts are expected to range between 1-3 inches.

This amount of rain over already wet ground will lead to flooding across the area, particularly in poor drainage areas and near small rivers and creeks.

Areas under the watch include Kill Devil Hills, Kitty Hawk, Nags Head, Southern Shores, Dare County and Hyde County.
