* From Thursday evening through Friday evening

* Low pressure is expected to move across the southeast states on
Friday. This weather system will bring another round of
widespread, potentially heavy, rainfall to the region. Rainfall
totals of 1" to 3" with locally higher amounts is possible. Any
rainfall received before Friday will only serve to further
saturate the soils.

* Soil conditions remain very saturated and river levels remain
high across the area. Even a relatively small amount of rainfall
will produce significant runoff and flooding of creeks and
rivers. Even after the rain ends, high water could persist for
several days after.

* 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.
