Weather Alert: Flash Flood Watch issued for Wednesday and Thursday

The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Watch for tomorrow morning, Wednesday, to Thursday afternoon, March 4 – 5, 2020 for several counties in Georgia including Walton, Gwinnett and surrounding counties.

* Moderate to heavy rainfall is expected to occur Wednesday
  through Thursday afternoon, with the highest amounts expected to
  begin late Wednesday and taper off late Thursday morning. The
  Watch area includes counties generally along and south of
  Interstate 20. Widespread rainfall amounts of 2 to 3.5 inches
  are expected over the area, with the highest amounts focused
  over middle Georgia. With high streamflows and already saturated
  soils, runoff from this additional rain will lead to a greater
  threat of flash flooding.


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

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should Flash Flood Warnings be issued, particularly if you live
or are visiting an area near a creek or river.
