Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 9:00 PM EDT on May 27, 2018

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on May 28, 2018


... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect from midnight EDT tonight
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.

* From midnight EDT tonight through Monday evening.

* Tropical moisture will stream north into the region tonight
into Memorial Day, resulting in showers and thunderstorms
capable of producing very heavy rain with high rainfall rates.
Expect widespread rainfall amounts of one to two inches
through Monday, with higher local amounts up to 3 to 4 inches
possible, especially across the eastern midlands. The heaviest
rainfall is expected late tonight into Monday morning. This
heavy rain, combined with saturated grounds from recent
rainfall, provides an enhanced threat of flooding. Flash
flooding near creeks, streams, poor drainage areas, and some
urban areas is possible.

* Motorists and persons engaged in outdoor activities should be
especially careful.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

Do not attempt to drive on flooded roads. It takes Little Water
to move a vehicle off the Road and into deeper water. Also, the
Road bed may not be intact under flood waters.

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