Forecasters: good chance for flash flooding this weekend

      COLUMBIA (WACH) -- Forecasters caution Midlands residents to watch out for thunderstorms and flash flooding this weekend.

      WACH Fox Weather Anchor Justin Kier says it looks like we can expect slow moving storms to pass through the area dumping large amounts of rain Friday through Sunday.

      Flooding is a good possibility in areas typically affected. High wind and frequent lightning can also be expected and there's a good chance for downbursts.

      Officials remind people to stay away from flooded areas and to not drive down streets that you can't see the bottom.

      There is good news, though. Temperatures will take a dip with highs expected in the upper 80's and low 90's.
