...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM 8 PM EDT THIS EVENING THROUGH
MONDAY EVENING...

The National Weather Service in Columbia has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch 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.

* From 8 PM EDT this evening through Monday evening

* Rainfall associated with a developing low pressure system will
  become widespread and heavy tonight, and persist into early
  Tuesday. Periods of very heavy rain will contribute to total
  rainfall of 2 to 4 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.
