Hydrologic Outlook
National Weather Service Peachtree City GA
1112 AM EDT Wed Jun 5 2019

...HEAVY RAINFALL EXPECTED OVER THE NEXT SEVEN DAYS...

.RAINFALL EXPECTED...
Forecast rainfall amounts for today through Wednesday, June 12,
continue to be high, particularly for this weekend. Widespread
rainfall amounts of 4 to 6 inches are expected, with higher
amounts up to 8 inches possible for the seven day period. At this
time, highest rainfall amounts are expected over portions of
northeast Georgia and the higher elevations.

.SYNOPSIS...
Oppressive high pressure over the region the last few weeks has
finally released its hold on Georgia, making way for an active
weather pattern to develop. Southwesterly flow will allow an
enhanced swath of moisture to remain situated over the southeast
U.S. into next week. Forecast models indicate that these
excessively moist conditions will promote heavy rainfall over this
period.

.ANTECEDENT CONDITIONS...
Georgia has experienced very dry conditions over the last few
weeks, with some areas not observing measurable rainfall for 23
days or more. As a result, soil conditions are dry, stream flows
are low, and drought conditions have begun to develop. These
antecedent conditions will keep the risk of widespread flash
flooding low, even with these forecast rainfall totals.

.IMPACTS...
At this time there is a low risk of widespread flash flooding.
Periods of heavy rain or quickly accumulating rainfall may cause
brief flooding of low-lying or flood-prone areas, or minor
flooding of smaller, fast-responding creeks and rivers.

.ACTIONS...
Stay alert to changes in the forecast. A Flood or Flash Flood
Watch is not expected to be issued at this time. Even so, now is a
good opportunity to locate creeks or rivers near you and clear
debris from drainage systems.
