* the combination of a tropical airmass and a slow moving area of
low pressure over northern Georgia will set up the potential for
very heavy localized rainfall late today into the overnight
hours. This area of low pressure is forecast to drift south into
central Georgia overnight and has the potential focus storms
over a small area for several hours. Some high resolution
computer models are indicating the potential for this scenario
which could lead to flash flooding over localized areas. There
is no guarantee this will occur however given the potential and
the history of it occurring Tuesday night into Wednesday morning
over Harris... Muscogee and Talbot counties, a Flash Flood Watch
is being issued.

* Potential exists for localized areas to receive an additional 4
to 6 inches of rainfall in a short period of time... especially
during the overnight and into the early morning hours Thursday.
Any areas receiving these amounts of rainfall in a short period
of time could expect flash flooding of creeks an streams as well
as the potential for flooded roads.

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