* A tropical low pressure system will bring heavy rainfall to
portions of Georgia Saturday and Sunday. Rainfall totals of 3 to 5
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.


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