possible across much of the western Carolinas and northeast
Georgia during the period, with the bulk of the heavy rain
falling tonight.

* This heavy rainfall will impact locations that received 2 to 4
inches of rain on Monday. The ground remains saturated and
stream levels across the region are running quite high. This
could lead to more widespread flooding along rivers and
streams than observed with the Monday system.

current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
