Tropical Storm Andrea is expected to bring more rainfall and the potential for flooding today as it passes near the Augusta area.

The storm could drop 2 to 4 inches of rain across the area today before it moves north, said National Weather Service forecaster Mike Proud.

The rainfall should start to lighten by late morning and into the afternoon, Proud said.

Proud said flooding remains the top concern. Winds should remain at about 15 mph, with gusts up to 25 mph, he said.

“The worst of it is probably going to be on the southern side of the CSRA,” Proud said. “You’re probably going to get more rain and more wind as you go from Augusta to Charleston along the coast.”

A flood watch remains in effect for the area through 8 p.m. today.

I live in an area east of

I live in an area east of Augusta that receives very little of the bad weather and excess rain. Often we get none when thunderstorms roll through. We often have approaching drought conditions. The luck or lack of the luck of the draw. It was where we wanted to live, the kind of house we wanted to live in, at age 27, 5 bedrooms, 2800 sf, more than a half acre lot, all brick, less than 2 miles to downtown Aiken, a mile to Aiken Regional and USCA, ease to get to Augusta via 3 routes and to Columbia.
