PORTIONS OF NORTH AND CENTRAL GEORGIA THROUGH FRIDAY. LOCALLY
HIGHER AMOUNTS CAN BE EXPECTED AS WELL...ESPECIALLY ACROSS
NORTH AND WEST CENTRAL GEORGIA. PERIODS OF HEAVY RAIN COMBINED
WITH INCREASINGLY SATURATED GROUND CONDITIONS WILL INCREASE THE
FLOOD THREAT THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK.

.SYNOPSIS...
A MOIST AND UNSETTLED PATTERN IS EXPECTED ACROSS THE FORECAST
AREA THROUGH FRIDAY. PERIODS OF MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINFALL ARE
EXPECTED AS A BROAD LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM STAYS SITUATED WEST OF
THE AREA...ALLOWING FOR AN ABNORMALLY MOIST AND TROPICAL AIRMASS.
THE GREATEST CHANCE OF RAINFALL WILL BE IN THE AFTERNOON TO
EVENING PERIODS EACH DAY...THOUGH ROUNDS OF SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS COULD DEVELOP ANYTIME.

.ANTECEDENT CONDITIONS...
ALTHOUGH PORTIONS OF THE STATE HAVE OBSERVED BELOW NORMAL
RAINFALL OVER THE LAST SEVERAL WEEKS AND DROUGHT CONDITIONS
EXIST...RUNOFF FROM REPEATED ROUNDS OF RAINFALL OR TRAINING
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS COULD QUICKLY RESULT IN BOTH RURAL AND
URBAN FLOODING.

ISOLATED FLASH FLOODING WILL BE POSSIBLE IF THE HEAVY RAIN
REPEATEDLY MOVES OVER THE SAME AREA...OR IF HEAVY DOWNPOURS RESULT
IN HIGH RAINFALL AMOUNTS OVER A SHORT PERIOD. ALSO...STORM DRAINS
AND DITCHES MAY BECOME QUICKLY CLOGGED WITH DEBRIS AND CAUSE
EXTENSIVE STREET FLOODING AND ROAD PONDING.

MINOR FLOODING OF SOME OF THE LARGER CREEKS OR RIVERS IS MORE
LIKELY WITH THE EXPECTED STORM TOTAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS IN NORTH AND
CENTRAL GEORGIA AND SHOULD BE MONITORED CLOSELY.
