  Georgia...Barrow...Cherokee...Clayton...Cobb...Dawson...

* From 2 PM EDT this afternoon through Saturday evening

* 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. Any
  additional heavy rainfall will create run off, potentially
  leading to flooding. Widespread one to two inches of rainfall
  are likely as the system interacts with the weak surface
  boundary. However, locally 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.

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.
