DAILY RIVER AND LAKE SUMMARY  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE COLUMBIA SC  
1216 PM EDT FRI AUG 18 2017  
   
..ALL RIVER FORECAST POINTS REMAIN BELOW FLOOD STAGE
 
 
 
A SURFACE TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE WILL REMAIN IN THE FORECAST  
AREA THROUGH THIS EVENING, THEN A WEAK COLD FRONT WILL DROP INTO  
THE AREA SATURDAY AND DRIFT TOWARD THE COAST. AS A RESULT,  
ATMOSPHERIC MOISTURE WILL REMAIN HIGH THIS AFTERNOON BUT DECREASE  
SOMEWHAT SATURDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.  
 
SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE MOST LIKELY THIS AFTERNOON  
AND EARLY EVENING ACROSS PIEDMONT COUNTIES IN THE WESTERN AND  
NORTHERN PORTION OF THE AREA, THEN WILL FAVOR EASTERN AND SOUTHERN  
COUNTIES OVER THE WEEKEND.  
 
AT THIS TIME, RAINFALL DURING THE PERIOD IS NOT EXPECTED TO BE  
SIGNIFICANT ENOUGH TO PRODUCE ANY MAIN STEM RIVER FLOODING.  
THEREFORE, GENERALLY MINOR RIVER RISES OR FLUCTUATIONS ARE EXPECTED  
ACROSS AREA RIVER BASINS THROUGH SUNDAY, AND WILL BE GOVERNED MAINLY  
BY WATER RELEASES DUE TO POWER GENERATION FROM UPSTREAM RESERVOIRS.
