Flash flood concerns continue as a cold front approaches Monday

Posted: Updated:

We've got the right ingredients to see showers through the morning, and then thunderstorms later in the day.  A cold front and associated low pressure system are moving in from the west, and we have plenty of moisture already on the ground.  The thunderstorm threat includes a potential for wind damage, downpours, and possibly an isolated tornado.  Already having a surplus of rain, saturated soil, and elevated stream/creek levels, we are under a Flash Flood Watch until 6:00pm for the entire area.  Any downpours won't have room in the creeks/drains to move out quickly, so be cautious and aware of flash flooding throughout the day.  Remember the phrase: turn around, don't drown.  We aren't looking at constant storms all day, but an on and off set of storms with subsequent downpours very similar to the setup we saw on Sunday afternoon.  The first round of storms should enter the mountains through late morning, with the Upstate starting to see storms shortly after noon.  Around evening we will see a lull in the storm activity, though a few more could pop up through the overnight.
