...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT THROUGH SUNDAY EVENING...

The National Weather Service in Peachtree City has expanded the

* Flash Flood Watch to include portions of north central Georgia,
  northeast Georgia and northwest Georgia, including the following
  areas, in north central Georgia, Cherokee, Dawson, Fannin,
  Forsyth, Gilmer, Hall, Lumpkin, Pickens and Union. In northeast
  Georgia, Banks, Towns and White. In northwest Georgia, Bartow.

* Through Sunday evening.

* A tropical low pressure system will bring heavy rainfall to
  portions of Georgia today and Sunday. Rainfall totals of 2 to 4
  inches are expected over the watch area, with higher amounts to 6
  inches possible over portions of western and north Georgia.
  Quickly accumulating rainfall will easily allow for efficient
  runoff and increase flash flooding potential.

* Creeks and streams may rise out of their banks and inundate
  fields, roads, businesses and other property. Street flooding
  could also lead to road closures.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
