Flash Flood Watch


Flood Watch
National Weather Service Columbia SC
440 AM EDT Sun May 27 2018

...Flash Flood Watch in effect from 800 pm tonight to 800 am
Monday morning...

.Tropical moisture will stream north into the region late today
and tonight. Expect widespread rainfall amounts tonight of one to
two inches, with higher local amounts up to 3 to 4 inches possible.
The heaviest rainfall amounts are expected to taper off some from
south to north late tonight into Monday morning. This additional
rain, combined with saturated grounds from recent heavy rains,
provides an enhanced threat of flooding. The timing of most of the
rain at night also provides additional concerns.

A moist pattern may remain in place through early to mid week,
with some uncertainty on additional rainfall amounts and timing.
Additonal flood watches may be required later.

and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards and the beach patrol. Pay
attention to flags and posted signs.
