Our area is under a flash flood watch through this evening.

The National Weather Service issued the watch for much of Southeast Georgia after rain over the weekend and the expectation of more.

A watch means the condition is expected.

“Numerous showers and thunderstorms will occur this afternoon and evening as a stationary front gradually dissipates over the area,” a release from the service’s Charleston office said. “High moisture values combined with slow moving showers and thunderstorms will result in an increased potential for flash flooding, especially in areas that observed very heavy rains Sunday.”

The forecast for Hinesville say showers and storms will be mainly after 3 p.m. The chance for rain is 80 percent and is expected to last until 9. Tuesday, rain chances are listed as 60 percent after 5 p.m. But amounts are expected to be under an inch.

Wednesday and Thursday the chance for rain drops to 30 percent.
