* WHEN…Through late tonight.

* IMPACTS…Excessive runoff may result in flooding of rivers, creeks, streams, and other low-lying and flood-prone locations. Area creeks and streams are running high and could flood with more heavy rain.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS… – Rainfall continues this morning across these areas. Heaviest rainfall is likely to be more confined to central GA, but given that 1.5-3″ has fallen across portions of the western I-85 corridor, the watch will remain in effect until rainfall ends. In portions of central GA, an addition 0.5″ to 1″ will be possible, especially over the next few hours, which could lead to flash flooding…”
