... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of east central Georgia and central South Carolina,
including the following areas, in east central Georgia, Burke,
Columbia, Lincoln, McDuffie, and Richmond. In central South
Carolina, Aiken, Bamberg, Barnwell, Calhoun, Chesterfield,
Clarendon, Edgefield, Fairfield, Kershaw, Lancaster, Lee,
Lexington, McCormick, Newberry, Orangeburg, Richland, Saluda,
and Sumter.

* Through this evening

* rainfall associated with an upper level low pressure system will
persist across the region through 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 will become saturated as periods of heavy rainfall
move across the area. This 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.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.
