...HEAVY RAIN EXPECTED OVER NORTH GEORGIA THURSDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH EARLY FRIDAY MORNING WITH POSSIBLE FLOODING...

.RAINFALL EXPECTED...

STORM TOTAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 1 TO 3 INCHES ARE POSSIBLE FOR NORTH GEORGIA THURSDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH EARLY FRIDAY. THE AREA OF CONCERN WOULD BE MAINLY NORTH OF A LINE FROM FRANKLIN THROUGH MCDONOUGH AND MONROE TO HOMER. THIS WOULD INCLUDE THE ATLANTA METRO AREA. .SYNOPSIS...

A STRONG LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM OVER THE SOUTHWEST U.S. WILL CONTINUE TO DEEPEN AS IT MOVES ACROSS THE SOUTHERN STATES THIS WEEK. THE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM SHOULD MOVE OVER LOUISIANA ON THURSDAY AND OVER GEORGIA ON FRIDAY. A MODERATELY STRONG LOW LEVEL JET WILL PROVIDE ABUNDANT GULF MOISTURE IN ADVANCE OF THE STORM WHICH WILL COMBINE WITH THE OROGRAPHIC EFFECTS OF THE GEORGIA MOUNTAINS TO ENHANCE THE RAINFALL. .PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS...

RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 2 TO 4 INCHES HAVE OCCURRED OVER THE AREA OF CONCERN DURING THE PAST 7 DAYS. CONSEQUENTLY...MOIST SOIL CONDITIONS EXIST WITH SOME AREAS STILL SATURATED. THIS WILL ALLOW ANY HEAVY RAIN TO BE QUICKLY ABSORBED...THEN RUN OFF INTO NEARBY STREAMS...

CREEKS AND RIVERS. ISOLATED CREEK AND RIVER FLOODING HAS OCCURRED IN SOME LOCATIONS IN THE PAST 1 TO 2 WEEKS. STREAMFLOW LEVELS ARE GENERALLY ABOVE NORMAL WITH LOCATIONS SUCH AS THE WEST CHICKAMAUGA CREEK NEAR FORT OGLETHORPE...THE COAHULLA CREEK NEAR DALTON...AND THE OOSTANAULA RIVER NEAR CALHOUN STILL ABOVE BANKFULL FROM THE RAIN THIS PAST WEEKEND. .IMPACTS...

ISOLATED FLASH FLOODING WILL BE POSSIBLE IF THE HEAVY RAIN REPEATEDLY MOVES OVER THE SAME AREA. ALSO...STORM DRAINS AND DITCHES IN URBAN AREAS MAY BECOME QUICKLY CLOGGED WITH DEBRIS AND CAUSE EXTENSIVE STREET FLOODING AND ROAD PONDING. MINOR FLOODING OF SOME OF THE LARGER CREEKS OR RIVERS IS MORE LIKELY WITH THE EXPECTED STORM TOTAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS. THESE WOULD INCLUDE LOOKOUT CREEK IN DADE COUNTY AND WEST AND SOUTH CHICKAMAUGA CREEKS IN WALKER AND CATOOSA COUNTIES...THE CONASAUGA RIVER ALONG THE WHITFIELD AND MURRAY COUNTY LINE...AND BIG CREEK IN FORSYTH AND NORTH FULTON COUNTIES. OTHER RIVERS IN NORTH GEORGIA SUCH AS THE COOSAWATTEE...OOSTANAULA...TOCCOA...NOTTELY AND THE HIWASSEE SHOULD BE MONITORED CLOSELY. .PREPAREDNESS...

THIS WEATHER SITUATION SHOULD BECOME MORE CERTAIN WITH EACH MODEL RUN...SO STAY ALERT FOR POSSIBLE FLOOD WATCHES AND FUTURE WARNINGS. KNOW WHAT TO DO IF A WARNING IS ISSUED AND YOU LIVE NEAR A CREEK OR RIVER. FOR ADDITIONAL HYDROLOGIC INFORMATION...VISIT OUR WEBSITE AT WEATHER.GOV/ATLANTA.
