...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM EDT THIS
The Flash Flood Watch continues for
* A portions of central and northern Midlands in South Carolina.
* Until 8 PM EDT this evening
* Rainfall associated with an upper level low pressure system will
persist across the region through the early portions of tonight.
1 to 3 inches of rain has already fallen and periods of
additional heavy rain will contribute to total rainfall of 2 to
5 inches, with isolated higher amounts possible.
* Grounds are saturated from previous rainfall across the area.
Additional rainfall has the potential to lead to flash
flooding, especially in locations with poor drainage such as
urban areas or in and around culverts. Excessive roadway ponding
is also likely, and at times some roads may become impassable,
especially if drainage ditches overflow onto roadways.
A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION.
You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
