Emanuel- Treutlen- Wheeler- Montgomery- Toombs- Coffee- Jeff Davis- Bacon- Appling- Wayne- Atkinson- Ware- Pierce- Brantley- Inland Glynn- Coastal Glynn-

The Combination Of An Upper Low Pressure System... Abundant Moisture And A Nearly Stationary Front Across Central Georgia Will Result In The Potential For Heavy Rainfall Again Today. Rainfall Amounts Of 1 To 3 Inches Occurred Across Much Of The Watch Area On Monday... And Another 1 To 3 Inches With Isolated Higher Amounts Will Be Possible Again This Afternoon And Evening Across The Watch Area.

With Saturated Soils Already In Place... Any Heavy Rainfall Amounts Will Continue To Provide A Potential For Flash Flooding... To Include Rapid Rises On Area Creeks... Streams And Rivers. Additionally... Because Of The Saturated Soils... There Is Also A Potential For Downed Trees Across The Area.

A Flash Flood Watch Means That Conditions May Develop That Lead To Flash Flooding. Flash Flooding Is A Very Dangerous Situation.
