The National Weather Service in Peachtree City has issued a * Flood Watch for North and Central Georgia. * From Saturday morning through Sunday evening * A strong storm system will spread rain across north and central Georgia tonight and continuing into Sunday. Some of the rain could be heavy late Saturday and Saturday night. Total rainfall of 2 to 3 inches is expected across the watch area with isolated higher amounts. * The ground across north and central Georgia remains saturated from recent rains. Some rivers and creeks are already running high. Any additional heavy rain will result in high runoff, potentially causing some rivers and creeks to rise above flood stage. High water may not recede until well after the rains end. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts. You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop. &&
