...FLOOD WATCH NOW IN EFFECT THROUGH SATURDAY MORNING...

The Flood Watch is now in effect for

* Portions of portions of north Georgia along and north of a line
from Rome to Canton to Cleveland.

* Through 7 AM EST Saturday morning.

* Soil conditions remain saturated and river levels remain high
across the area. The potential for locally heavy rainfall will
continue through tonight. Rainfall totals up to 1 inch, with
locally higher amounts possible in any stronger storms. This
amount of rainfall will produce significant runoff and flooding
of creeks and rivers.

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

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
