PERSISTENT RAIN HAS SATURATED THE GROUND, MAKING IT QUITE SOGGY.  
MEANWHILE, BRISK NORTHEAST WINDS ARE PROBABLE TONIGHT AS AN AREA  
OF LOW PRESSURE MOVES NORTHWARD OVER EASTERN NORTH CAROLINA. WIND  
GUSTS 20 TO 25 MPH ARE POSSIBLE. THESE WINDS CAN EASILY TOPPLE  
TREES WITH SHALLOW OR WEAKENED ROOTS DUE TO THE SOGGY SOIL. SOME
