...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM MIDNIGHT EDT TONIGHT
THROUGH MONDAY AFTERNOON...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of southeast North Carolina and northeast South
  Carolina, including the following areas, in southeast North
  Carolina, Bladen, Coastal Brunswick, Coastal New Hanover,
  Coastal Pender, Columbus, Inland Brunswick, Inland New
  Hanover, Inland Pender, and Robeson. In northeast South
  Carolina, Central Horry, Coastal Georgetown, Coastal Horry,
  Darlington, Dillon, Florence, Inland Georgetown, Marion,
  Marlboro, Northern Horry, and Williamsburg.

* From midnight EDT tonight through Monday afternoon

* 2 to 3 inches of rain, and locally higher amounts of 4 to 5
  inches, will fall late tonight through Monday on top of already
  soggy ground, which brings the potential for problematic
  flooding. Overflow of water from ditches and streams could lead
  to flash flooding as well, where the danger increases greatly,
  due to the power of moving water.


PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to
flooding or flash flooding.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
