* Through Tuesday morning

* abundant tropical moisture will arrive over the western
Carolinas and northeast Georgia tonight and persist through
the early part of the week. Rainfall totals around the region
this week will likely reach or exceed 2 to 4 inches. Locally
heavier rainfall will be possible in locations that see
repeated rounds of thunderstorms where rainfall rates could
reach 1 to 2 inches per hour in the heaviest downpours. This
heavy rain will fall on ground already saturated by rainfall
over the past 7 to 10 days.

* Flash flooding of streams and creeks could develop very
quickly under these circumstances, especially in urban areas.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
Make plans now to avoid travel during the peak of the heavy
rainfall. Also have plans on where to flee to higher ground if
flash flooding affects your location.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
