with a boundary that will move south across much of Georgia
through tonight. Areas along and north of the Interstate 20
corridor have received heavy rains within the last week with 1
to 1.25 inches occurring last evening across portions of the
watch area. Any additional heavy rainfall will create run off,
potentially leading to flooding. An additional 1 inch of
rainfall is likely, with locally higher amounts possible as the
system continues over the region.

* Flooding in low lying and flood prone areas will still be
possible, especially in urban areas along the Interstate 20
corridor. In addition, creeks, streams and rivers may overflow
their banks.


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.
