* the Flood Watch area is generally north of a line from Buchanan
through Atlanta and Lawrenceville to Homer. One to two inches of
rain has fallen across portions of far north Georgia over the past
two days. Additional rainfall amounts around one and a half to two
inches can be expected with isolated higher amounts near three
inches possible on the ridgelines of north Georgia through
Wednesday. Soils have also remained moist across north Georgia from
above average rainfall during the first half of November.

* Persistent moderate to occasionally heavy rainfall will have a high
runoff potential causing flooding of creeks... streams and small
rivers. Also... drainage issues can be expected during this time of
year due to Leaf debris clogging drains... leading to enhanced
localized street flooding.

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.
