Hydrologic Outlook
National Weather Service Peachtree City GA
131 PM EST Sat Feb 8 2020

...ANOTHER ROUND OF VERY HEAVY RAINFALL AND FLOODING LIKELY ON
MONDAY AND TUESDAY FOR NORTH AND CENTRAL GEORGIA...
...ADDITIONAL HEAVY RAIN POSSIBLE ON THURSDAY...

.RAINFALL EXPECTED...
Another strong storm system will approach the state on Monday
bringing prolonged heavy rain. Current forecasts indicate 2 to 4
inches of rain just from Monday morning through Tuesday afternoon.
The heaviest amounts are expected over north Georgia where
isolated areas may see up to 5 inches. Light to moderate rain is
expected to linger into Wednesday with yet another round of heavy
rain possible on Thursday.

.ANTECEDENT CONDITIONS...
Very heavy rain from earlier this week produced 3 to 6 inches of
rain across all of north and central Georgia with the highest
amounts falling over north Georgia. Streamflow remains very high,
with much above normal conditions being observed. With the
anticipated heavy rain, many rivers will be unable to handle the
expected runoff.

.IMPACTS...
Widespread minor to moderate river flooding and flash flooding is
likely for much of north Georgia and will be possible over middle
Georgia as well. Roads will become closed and property
susceptible to flooding will be at risk.

.ACTIONS...
Stay alert to the latest forecasts and information. A Flash Flood
or Flood Watch may be issued for north Georgia and possibly
further south. Know what county you are in and the names of
rivers and creeks in your area. Mentally rehearse what to do if a
Flash Flood Warning is issued, particularly if you are driving or
live or are visiting an area near a creek or river.
