...Winter/Spring Flood Potential Outlook for Southeast South
Carolina and Southeast Georgia...

This outlook applies to the following counties:

In Southeast South Carolina:

Portions of southeast South Carolina and most of southeast
Georgia are experiencing Abnormally Dry (D0) conditions.
Streamflows on area main stem rivers range from below-normal to
normal, with the Savannah River basin much below-normal. Rain
chances for the next week are forecast to be low. A cold front is
expected to pass through early next week, but widespread
significant rainfall is not anticipated. The 1-month
precipitation outlook for February from the Climate Prediction
Center shows a 40 to 50 percent chance of below-normal
precipitation. The 3-month outlook valid through April also shows
a 40 to 50 percent chance of below-normal precipitation. The
combination of these factors indicate a below normal chance for
river flooding over the next three months.

The next Winter/Spring Flood Potential Outlook will be issued on
1 February 2018.
