Current Warnings & Watches

Flash Flood Watch: A Flash Flood Watch is in effect through noon Friday for counties along and east of highway 17. An additional 1-2″ of rain will be possible on top of the 3-6″ that has already fallen in this area. Small creeks, streams, and ditches may overflow with the heavy downpours. City streets may flood as water falls faster than drains can handle. Use extra caution on the roadways throughout midday Friday, especially east of highway 17.

Discussion: We are tracking the slow-moving area of low pressure over the plains states that will move slowly to the northeast drawing plenty of moisture up the east coast through late week. That’ll send us into an extended period of active weather with decent chances for showers and storms. Through Friday, models show us getting a solid 1.00″ to 2.00″ of additional rain across the region. There will be breaks of sunshine between some of the showers.
