Rolesville officials also evacuated Mill Bridge Nature Park around noon on Saturday.

Most of the numerical forecast models are implying that Raleigh should pick up between 2 and 2.5 inches of rain this weekend, which can cause flooding of both low-lying and poor drainage areas.

If you come across a flooded road and you cannot see the pavement, do not drive through it.
