Flash flood watch, from 7 p.m. Thursday through 7 p.m. From the National Weather Service: “Low pressure is expected to move across the southeast states on Friday. This weather system will bring another round of widespread, potentially heavy, rainfall to the region. Rainfall totals of one to three inches with locally higher amounts is possible. Any rainfall received before Friday will only serve to further saturate the soil. Soil conditions remain very saturated and river levels remain high across the area. Even a relatively small amount of rainfall will produce significant runoff and flooding of creeks and rivers. Even after the rain ends, high water could persist for several days after.
“Additional rainfall is expected through the end of the week, with a potentially strong storm system affecting the area late Thursday into Friday. Flooding will continue to be the primary concern due to the already wet soils and high runoff from periods of rain. More details will be provided on this system over the next couple of days.” — National Weather Service
