A Flash Flood Watch was issued for parts of the Upstate, along and north of I-85, and the southern mountains of WNC through 8 p.m. Sunday.

Most areas will pick up one-to-3 inches of rain, with areas in the Flash Flood Watch picking up an average of two-to-five inches of rain. This amount of rainfall in such a short period of time could lead to pockets of flash flooding in low-lying areas.

The severe threat for the Upstate is low, but still certainly possible, especially to the south of our area later Sunday morning.

As the day progresses, rain will taper off but a chance of scattered showers and storms will remain.
