Emergency officials in counties all across eastern Carolina are watching for possible flooding this weekend.
Much of Pitt County is expected to get two to three inches of rainfall. That's on top of the precipitation that's melted throughout the week.
Although the Tar River in Greenville is below flood stage, it is still high. And with the ground so saturated -- local farmers are concerned about getting their crops in the ground in the weeks and months head. So far, producers at Renston Homestead Farms in Pitt County say their strawberry crop looks good, but it's too wet for field preparations.
Noel Lee with Pitt County Emergency Management says with all this water, they expect some problems. "Our major concern is the streams being full with 2 to 3 inches of quick rain...having flash flooding that is our largest concern."
The Tar River in Greenville could begin to rise through next week as all the water west starts flowing eastward.
