...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM EST THIS
EVENING...
...FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM 7 PM EST THIS EVENING THROUGH
FRIDAY EVENING...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* North Georgia and portions of central GA, mainly along and
north of the Interstate 85 corridor.

* Until 7 PM EST this evening

* Soil conditions remain very saturated and river levels remain
high across the area. The potential for locally heavy rainfall
will continue through this evening. Rainfall totals up to an
1", with locally higher amounts possible in any stronger
storms. This amount of rainfall will produce significant
runoff and flooding of creeks and rivers.

* Periods of heavy rain can overwhelm or clog storm drains and
ditches with debris and cause extensive street flooding and
road ponding. This is especially true this time of year as
fallen leaves block or impede drainage systems. Take time
ahead of the rain to clear leaves and debris from these
drainage systems. Due to the extremely saturated soils, downed
trees will be likely, even with sub severe winds.

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.
