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. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... 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.
