(WGHP) — Thunderstorms will roll through the Piedmont on Monday morning, and flash flooding is expected, according to a flash flood watch released by the National Weather Service.
The flash flood watch goes into effect at 12 a.m. and ends at 10 a.m.
Flash flooding is likely in the following counties:
Creeks, rivers and streams may flood due to excessive runoff.
Flooding may also happen in poor drainage and urban areas.
The first week of 2022 will bring winter temperatures and perhaps some winter weather to the Piedmont as well.
Cold air will move into the Piedmont on Sunday night while a low-pressure system will move to our south. The low will bring rain back into the Piedmont.
As the cold air overtakes the rain, there’s a chance the moisture could end as a rain/snow mix or change completely to snow across the northern Piedmont.
Given our extremely warm December, the ground is very warm.
Little to no snow accumulation is expected. If we do see accumulating snow, it would be on the grass and some elevated surfaces.
No travel troubles are anticipated at this time.

NEW YORK (AP) — The NFL, not surprisingly in the midst of a rise in COVID-19 cases, has looked into other potential sites for next month’s Super Bowl.
That’s not unusual because the league does so every year. But with Los Angeles the site for this year’s title game, and restrictions increasing for attendance at indoor events, it has become more noteworthy.
(The Hill) – Attorney General Merrick Garland on Wednesday defended the Justice Department’s approach to prosecuting those involved in the Jan. 6 riot, signaling the potential for charges for those who never set foot in the Capitol.
“The actions we have taken thus far will not be our last. The Justice Department remains committed to holding all January six perpetrators at any level, accountable under law, whether they were present that day, or were otherwise criminally responsible for the assault on our democracy. We will follow the facts wherever they lead,” Garland said on the eve of the attack’s one-year anniversary.
