Carolinas Flooding Update 2:30pm EDT

Thunderstorms are increasing over the Piedmont and that they are going to multiply as the hours pass.

I wanted to take a look at the European model and the amount of rain it is forecasting is breathtaking:
The above rainfall map is the forecast rainfall from now through 6pm Sunday evening. The purple areas could have more than a foot of rain. Please note, the pattern could easily shift 100 mi. north or south, do not consider the forecast to be exact. Catastrophic flooding could result.

In the white areas of Georgia and North Carolina, rainfall could exceed six inches which is plenty to cause flooding, at least on a local basis.
