Flood watch issued for Midlands


A flood watch has been issued for the Midlands through Sunday evening.

Very heavy rainfall will occur with some of the showers and thunderstorms.

The primary threat is flooding in urban and poor-drainage locations and along small streams.

On Saturday, a new rainfall record was set in Columbia. From midnight through about 5 p.m. Saturday 2.50 inches of rain fell. 

That total will replace the old record of 2.49 inches which was set in 1964.
