...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH TUESDAY MORNING...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* All of northeast South Carolina and southeast North Carolina.

* Through Tuesday morning.

* Heavy rain beginning late tonight through early Tuesday with
  rainfall of 3 to 7 inches expected. Locally higher amounts are
  possible.

* The ground will become saturated, increasing the potential for
  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.
