Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 3:42 AM EST Feb. 21, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of north central Georgia... northeast Georgia...
northwest Georgia and west central Georgia... including the
following areas... in north central Georgia... Barrow...
Cherokee... Clayton... Cobb... Dawson... DeKalb... Douglas...
Fannin... Fayette... Forsyth... Gilmer... Gwinnett... Hall...
Lumpkin... north Fulton... Pickens... South Fulton and Union. In
northeast Georgia... banks... Jackson... towns and white. In
northwest Georgia... Bartow... Carroll... Catoosa... Chattooga...
Dade... Floyd... Gordon... Haralson... Murray... Paulding... Polk...
Walker and Whitfield. In west central Georgia... Coweta and
heard.

* Through this evening

* soil conditions remain very saturated and river levels remain
high across the area. The potential for locally heavy rainfall
will continue through this evening. Rainfall totals up to an 1",
with locally higher amounts possible in any stronger storms.
This amount of rainfall will produce significant runoff and
flooding of creeks and rivers.

* Periods of heavy rain can overwhelm or clog storm drains and
ditches with debris and cause extensive street flooding and
Road ponding. This is especially true this time of year as
fallen leaves block or impede drainage systems. Take time
ahead of the rain to clear leaves and debris from these
drainage systems. Due to the extremely saturated soils, downed
trees will be likely, even with sub severe winds.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
