Forecast: Heavy rain, some river flooding possible

Expected heavy rain could push the South River to crest at or just above flood stage in Waynesboro late Thursday.

The forecast for the next two days has the Greater Augusta area in line for 3-5 inches of rain as the remnants of Tropical Storm Nicole work their way up the Eastern Seaboard. Locally heavier amounts are possible.

Minor river flooding could result in Waynesboro along the South River. A projected crest of 10 feet is possible late Thursday.
