Flash Flood Watch

Statement as of 3:02 PM EDT on May 25, 2018

Expires 8:00 AM EDT on May 26, 2018


... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Saturday morning...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* north and central Georgia.

* Through Saturday morning

* 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.
