...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.
