Flash Flood Watch
Statement as of 11:43 AM EDT on October 04, 2015

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

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of northeast Georgia... Piedmont North Carolina and
upstate South Carolina... including the following areas... in
northeast Georgia... Elbert... Franklin... Hart and Stephens. In
Piedmont North Carolina... Cleveland... Gaston... Lincoln...
Mecklenburg and Union. In upstate South Carolina... Abbeville...
   Anderson... Cherokee... Chester... greater Greenville... greater
Oconee... greater Pickens... Greenwood... Laurens... Spartanburg...
   Union and York.

* Through Monday morning

* heavy rain will persist today as tropical moisture continues
to wrap westward from the Atlantic coast toward the southern
Appalachians. The precipitation will gradually diminish from
the west tonight into Monday.

* Additional storm total rainfall of 1 to 3 inches is likely
across the region... with locally higher amounts south of
Greenville and into the lower Piedmont from Abbeville to
Greenwood. This heavy rainfall is expected to produce flash
flooding along smaller creeks and streams... with significant
flash flooding possible... especially in areas that already
received heavy rain in recent days. Flooding may also develop
along some main Stem rivers and possibly persist into early
next week. People living near streams should monitor the
situation closely. Be prepared to move to higher ground if
your location is threatened by flood waters.

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. Consider postponing travel
if possible. If you must travel... never drive through flooded
roadways. Turn around... dont drown.
