...Heavy Rainfall and the Threat of Flash Flooding returns to the
Mid-South Thursday afternoon and continues through Saturday
night...

.A frontal boundary will lift back north tomorrow afternoon and
interact with several upper level disturbances Thursday through
Saturday night. As a result, the Mid-South will experience
multiple rounds of heavy rainfall over the next several days.
Another 2 to 4 inches of rainfall is expected...with isolated
higher amounts to 6 inches or more. Heavy rainfall on top of fully
saturated grounds and swollen rivers and creeks will likely cause

...FLOOD WATCH HAS BEEN TRANSITIONED TO A FLASH FLOOD WATCH...

.Overview...Locally heavy rainfall is expected to develop tonight
and last through Thursday evening. Soils have become very
saturated across portions of north Georgia, mainly along and north
of the Interstate 85 and Interstate 20 corridors. Higher rainfall
rates in combination with the saturated soils will increase the
potential for Flash Flooding tonight through Thursday evening.

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


The National Weather Service in Peachtree City has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for portions of north central Georgia...
  northeast Georgia and northwest Georgia...including the
  following areas...in north central Georgia...Cherokee...
  Dawson...Fannin...Gilmer...Lumpkin...Pickens and Union. In
  northeast Georgia...Towns and White. In northwest Georgia...
  Bartow...Catoosa...Chattooga...Dade...Floyd...Gordon...
  Haralson...Murray...Paulding...Polk...Walker and Whitfield.

* Through Thursday evening

* Soil conditions remain very saturated and river levels remain
  high across the area. The potential for locally heavy rainfall
  will increase tonight and last through Thursday evening.
  Rainfall totals between 1" and 3" are likely, with locally
  higher amounts possible. This amount of rainfall will produce
  significant runoff and flooding of creeks and rivers. The watch
  may have to be extended into Friday, or even the weekend, as
  additional rainfall is expected during this time.


* Periods of heavy rain can overwhelm or clog storm drains and
  ditches with debris and cause extensive street flooding and road
  ponding. This is especially true this time of year as fallen
  leaves block or impede drainage systems. Take time ahead of the
  rain to clear leaves and debris from these drainage systems. Due
  to the extremely saturated soils, downed trees will be likely,
  even with sub severe winds.
