Yet another strong storm system is approaching the Palmetto State. On a weekend, of course. But this one will bring all rain. And a lot of it.

 

 

 

A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for the Pee Dee region of South Carolina through Saturday afternoon, where two to four inches of rain is expected in this region. While that isn't a large or record-setting amount of rain, it will fall on already saturated soil. And since the rain will be heavy at times, it could produce flash flooding, especially in poor drainage areas near creeks, streams and ditches.
