(Cleveland)- The Storm Prediction Center has issued a slight risk category for the possibility of severe weather across White County late Sunday night through early afternoon Monday. There is also a flood risk and the National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch for White County and Northeast Georgia beginning at 7:pm this evening through Monday afternoon.
Don Strength, Deputy Director of White County Emergency Management said, ” This looks to be more of a heavy rain event for White County but a few strong to severe storms can’t be ruled out.” Everyone should remain weather-aware tonight into Monday.
The Flash Flood Watch tonight and Monday is for flash flooding caused by excessive rainfall.
Forecasters say 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.
Additionally, 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″ 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 http://www.weather.gov/safety/flood.
You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
