* The remnants of Tropical Storm Cindy will push eastward through
  the weekend. The remnants of the tropical system will interact
  with a weak boundary that will move south across much of Georgia
  through Saturday. Areas along and north of the Interstate 20
  corridor have received heavy rains within the last week with 1
  to 1.25 inches occurring this evening across portions of the
  watch area. Any additional heavy rainfall will create run off,
  potentially leading to flooding. An additional 1 to 2 inches of
  rainfall is likely as the system continues over the region.
  However, Isolated higher amounts around 3 inches are possible.


* Flooding in low lying and flood prone areas will still be
  possible, especially in urban areas along the Interstate 20
  corridor. In addition, creeks, streams and rivers may overflow
  their banks.
