The National Weather Service is warning about the possibility of heavy winds and rains arriving with Hurricane Matthew.
The NWS has issued a flash flood watch from Friday morning through Sunday morning.
Hurricane Matthew will approach the South Carolina coast Friday night and bring significant rainfall to the Midlands, according to the NWS. About 3 to 6 inches of rain could fall in the northern and central Midlands, with 6 to 10 inches falling in the eastern Midlands.
Flooding is possible, especially in low-lying and poor-drainage areas. Roads could become impassable due to high water.
In addition, a wind advisory is in effect from 8 p.m. Friday to 2 a.m. Sunday.
The T&D Region could see sustained winds of 30 to 35 mph, with gusts up to 45 mph. Winds this strong can make driving difficult.
