Flood Watch issued for our area

Sunday, February 11, 2024–2:10 p.m.

-National Weather Service-

A Flood Watch is in effect from 7 p.m. Sunday through Monday evening for much of Georgia, including Floyd. Bartow, Gordon, Chattooga, Polk, and Paulding Counties.

Excessive runoff may result in flooding of rivers, creeks, streams, and other low-lying and flood-prone locations.

Creeks and streams may rise out of their banks. Flooding may occur in poor drainage and urban areas.

Several rounds of heavy rain are expected to impact areas approximately north of a line from Troup to Warren County tonight through tomorrow as a warm front lifts into the area.

This front is expected to stall near central Georgia allowing gulf moisture to lift over. Widespread rainfall amounts of 2-4 inches will be likely.

This stalled front could also allow for repeated rounds of heavy, convective rainfall to occur over locations in northern GA that could lead to isolated higher amounts and flash flooding concerns, especially in and around urban areas.
