The National Weather Service in Columbia has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch 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 8 PM EDT this evening through Monday evening

* Rainfall associated with a developing low pressure system will
become widespread and heavy tonight, and persist into early
Tuesday. Periods of very heavy rain will contribute to total
rainfall of 2 to 4 inches, with isolated higher amounts

* 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.


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.
