AFTERNOON THROUGH SATURDAY EVENING...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of north central Georgia...northeast Georgia...
  northwest Georgia and west central Georgia...including the
  following areas...in north central Georgia...Barrow...
  Cherokee...Clayton...Cobb...Dawson...DeKalb...Douglas...
  Fannin...Fayette...Forsyth...Gilmer...Gwinnett...Hall...

  Catoosa...Chattooga...Dade...Floyd...Gordon...Haralson...
  Murray...Paulding...Polk...Walker and Whitfield. In west
  central Georgia...Coweta and Heard.

* 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.
