Statement as of 3:53 AM EST on February 27, 2009

... Flood Watch in effect from this afternoon through Saturday
morning for portions of north and central Georgia...

The National Weather Service in Peachtree City has issued a

* Flood Watch for portions of east central Georgia... north
central Georgia... northeast Georgia... northwest Georgia and
west central Georgia.

* From this afternoon through Saturday morning

* a large storm system pushing across the Great Lakes is expected
to pull a cold front across the lower Mississippi and Tennessee
Valley region today. A moderately strong low level flow will
force abundant moisture north from the Gulf of Mexico into the
southeast U.S. In advance of this system.

As the cold front moves southeast... showers and thunderstorms with
heavy rain are expected to develop over Alabama and move into
Georgia by this afternoon. The cold front is expected to become
stationary over north Georgia tonight and Saturday as a series of
upper level disturbances move parallel to the front. This will
cause a surface low pressure system to develop over central
Alabama and deepen as it moves northeast into the Carolinas by
Saturday night.

Widespread heavy rainfall amounts of 2 to 3 inches with isolated 4
inches possible can be anticipated over most of north Georgia
tonight and Saturday. The heavy rain threat area at this time
will be generally north of a line from LaGrange to Madison to

* This heavy rainfall will likely cause some rivers... streams and
creeks to rise to levels that result in minor flooding.
Localized flash flooding is also possible in urban areas and
mountainous terrain due to rapid runoff.

A Flood Watch means that conditions are favorable for flooding
especially along larger streams and rivers. If you are in the
watch area... check your preparedness requirements... especially if
you have interests along area rivers. Keep informed... and be
ready for action if flooding is observed or if a Flood Warning is
