* From 7 am EST Tuesday through Wednesday evening

* the Flood Watch area is generally north of a line from
Buchanan through Atlanta and Lawrenceville to Homer. Rainfall
amounts around two inches can be expected. Isolated higher
amounts near 3 inches are possible on the ridgelines of north
Georgia. Soils remain moist from the well above average
rainfall during the first half of November.

* Persistent rainfall after 12 hours will have greater runoff
potential to cause flooding of creeks and small rivers. Expect
drainage issues this time of year due to Leaf debris and
clogged drains to enhance localized street flooding. Several
creeks and rivers are projected to reach or go a foot above
flood stage based on the forecast rainfall.

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.
