* Through Thursday morning

* a strong upper level low pressure system in combination with
deep tropical moisture and saturated soils will set up the
potential for flooding and flash flooding across a large portion
of north and central Georgia on this morning through Thursday
morning. Rainfall will increase in intensity through the day
today across the watch area with an additional 2 to 3 inches of
rain likely with isolated higher amounts possible. The heaviest
rainfall is anticipated in the afternoon through the early
evening hours.

* Due to the heavy rainfall the past several days, many creeks
and streams are already near or above bankfull. Creeks and
rivers could rise out of their banks, closing roads and
impacting homes, businesses and farms. High water may not
recede until well after the rain has ended.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
