...FLASH FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 AM EDT SATURDAY...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* North and Central Georgia.

* Until 8 AM EDT Saturday

* 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. Widespread rainfall amounts of one to
  two inches are likely. Locally higher amounts of 3 inches or
  more are possible where storms repeatedly move. 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 rainfall 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.
