The Flash Flood Watch continues 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 overnight 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.
