Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 8:12 PM EDT on April 23, 2017

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on April 24, 2017


... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Monday 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 Monday evening.

* Rainfall associated with a developing low pressure system will
become widespread and heavy tonight, and persist through Monday
night. 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.
