...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT THROUGH SATURDAY MORNING...

The National Weather Service in Peachtree City has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for North and Central Georgia.

* Through Saturday morning

* Additional rounds of very heavy rainfall are likely as a trough
  of low pressure to the west feeds very high amounts of moisture
  into the area. Total rainfall amounts through Friday night could
  range from 2 to 4 inches with isolated amounts up to 8 inches.
  Much of this heavy rain could fall in a short amount of time.
  With the heavy rain that has already fallen in the last 2 days,
  it will only take a relatively small amount of heavy rain to
  cause significant flash flooding.

* Creeks and rivers will rise out of their banks closing roads or
  impacting homes, businesses and farms. Roads may become closed
  for extended periods of time. High water will not recede until
  well after the rain has ended.

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.
