...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT THROUGH LATE WEDNESDAY NIGHT...
The National Weather Service in Greenville-Spartanburg has issued
* Flash Flood Watch for portions of northeast Georgia, western
North Carolina, and upstate South Carolina, including the
following areas, in northeast Georgia, Elbert, Franklin, Hart,
and Stephens. In western North Carolina, Eastern Polk,
Henderson, Polk Mountains, and Transylvania. In upstate South
Carolina, Abbeville, Anderson, Cherokee, Chester, Greater
Greenville, Greater Oconee, Greater Pickens, Greenville
Mountains, Greenwood, Laurens, Oconee Mountains, Pickens
Mountains, Spartanburg, Union, and York.
* through late Wednesday night
* Multiple waves of showers and thunderstorms are expected to
impact much of Upstate South Carolina, northeast Georgia, and
portions of western North Carolina this afternoon through
Wednesday. Total rainfall amounts through this time are expected
to range from 2 to 3 inches. However, scattered to numerous
thunderstorms throughout the period will likely result in local
amounts that are much higher.
* Due to the widespread rain that fell over much of this area this
weekend, the ground is near saturation, and stream levels are
already running above normal. It will not take much additional
rainfall to produce flash flooding along smaller creeks and
streams, as well as the headwaters of some main stem rivers.
Main stem rivers and their larger tributaries will also rise
gradually, and some minor flooding will be possible along these
streams by mid-week.
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.
