Rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches are possible with isolated higher amounts, especially in the higher terrain of the mountains. These rainfall amounts will likely lead to flooding. * Rivers and creeks remain high from recent rainfall and the smaller basins will be quick to respond to high rainfall rates and associated runoff, particularly over north Georgia. 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, including those issued along creeks and rivers. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop. && $$
