WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND A FEW THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED TO REDEVELOP ACROSS GEORGIA TODAY AND CONTINUE INTO THURSDAY. AN ADDITIONAL 1 TO 2 INCHES OF RAIN IS POSSIBLE ACROSS THE WATCH AREA. RAINFALL SHOULD BEGIN TO TAPER OFF BY FRIDAY EVENING. * FLOODING CONTINUES ALONG MANY CREEKS AND RIVERS ACROSS GEORGIA. THIS ADDITIONAL RAINFALL WILL LIKELY PROLONG FLOODING IN MANY OF THESE AREAS… AND LIKELY CAUSE NEW FLOODING. ALSO…TEMPORARY URBAN AND STREET FLOODING COULD OCCUR DUE TO POOR DRAINAGE AND CLOGGED STORM DRAINS WHERE ANY HEAVY RAIN FALLS. 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.
