    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.
