Flood Watch
National Weather Service Greenville-Spartanburg SC
254 PM EST Wed Nov 14 2018

...A ROUND OF HEAVY RAINFALL TONIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY MORNING MAY
PRODUCE FLOODING ACROSS THE WESTERN CAROLINAS AND NORTHEAST
GEORGIA...

.A deep low pressure system moving east from the plains will
produce a southeasterly fetch of abundant Gulf of Mexico and
Atlantic moisture through tonight, slowly diminishing on
Thursday. Very wet ground conditions, along with current elevated
stream levels will heighten the risk of flooding across the region
through the period. While some of the precipitation may fall as
an icy mix across portions of western North Carolina, especially
tonight, enough rain could fall to produce some flooding there as
well.

* through Thursday

* A deep low pressure system over the plains will bring abundant
  Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico moisture to the Southeast through
  Thursday. Widespread rainfall totals of 1.5 to 3 inches will be
  possible across much of the western Carolinas and northeast
  Georgia, mainly tonight through Thursday morning.

* 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. The
  additional rainfall could lead to more widespread flooding along
  streams than was seen on Monday, while additional minor flooding
  on some main stem rivers is also expected.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
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.
