HYDROLOGIC OUTLOOK
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PEACHTREE CITY GA
449 AM EDT WED MAR 30 2016

...OCCASIONAL HEAVY RAIN EXPECTED OVER PORTIONS OF NORTH AND
CENTRAL GEORGIA THURSDAY AND FRIDAY WITH POSSIBLE FLOODING...

.RAINFALL EXPECTED...
STORM TOTAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 2.5 TO 3.5 INCHES ARE POSSIBLE
FOR PORTIONS OF NORTH AND WEST CENTRAL GEORGIA THURSDAY AND FRIDAY.
LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS AROUND 4 INCHES CAN BE EXPECTED...ESPECIALLY
ACROSS PORTIONS OF WEST CENTRAL GEORGIA /SOUTH OF I-20 AND WEST OF
I-75/. PERIODS OF HEAVY RAIN WILL RESULT IN SATURATED GROUND
CONDITIONS WHICH WILL INCREASE THE FLOOD THREAT THROUGH THE END OF
THE WEEK.

.SYNOPSIS...
A MOIST AND UNSETTLED PATTERN IS EXPECTED ACROSS THE FORECAST
AREA THURSDAY AND FRIDAY. PERIODS OF MODERATE HEAVY RAINFALL ARE
EXPECTED AS A FRONT APPROACHES AND THEN PUSHES THROUGH NORTH AND
CENTRAL GEORGIA. WEAK IMPULSES WILL INTERACT WITH THE FRONT TO
ENHANCE RAINFALL BEFORE IT PUSHES OUT OF THE AREA EARLY SATURDAY.

.ANTECEDENT CONDITIONS...
ALTHOUGH PORTIONS OF THE STATE HAVE OBSERVED BELOW NORMAL
RAINFALL IN THE LAST WEEK...RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF AROUND 1 TO 2
INCHES HAVE OCCURRED OVER PORTIONS OF NORTHWEST AND CENTRAL
GEORGIA DURING THE PAST SEVEN DAYS...OR 100 TO 150 PERCENT OF
NORMAL VALUES. MOIST SOIL CONDITIONS CONTINUE TO EXIST WITH NEAR
NORMAL STREAM FLOWS. THIS WILL ALLOW ANY HEAVY RAIN TO QUICKLY
RUN OFF INTO NEARBY STREAMS...CREEKS AND RIVERS.

.IMPACTS...
ISOLATED FLASH FLOODING WILL BE POSSIBLE IF THE HEAVY RAIN
REPEATEDLY MOVES OVER THE SAME AREA...OR IF HEAVY DOWNPOURS RESULT
IN HIGH RAINFALL AMOUNTS OVER A SHORT PERIOD. ALSO...STORM DRAINS
AND DITCHES MAY BECOME QUICKLY CLOGGED WITH DEBRIS AND CAUSE
EXTENSIVE STREET FLOODING AND ROAD PONDING.

MINOR FLOODING OF SOME OF THE LARGER CREEKS OR RIVERS IS MORE
LIKELY WITH THE EXPECTED STORM TOTAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS IN NORTHWEST
AND WEST CENTRAL GEORGIA AND SHOULD BE MONITORED CLOSELY.

STAY ALERT FOR POSSIBLE FLOOD WATCHES AND FUTURE WARNINGS. KNOW
WHAT TO DO IF A WARNING IS ISSUED AND YOU LIVE NEAR A CREEK OR
RIVER.
