* THROUGH TUESDAY MORNING

* A SLOW MOVING LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM OVER THE FLORIDA BIG BEND HAS
BEEN CONTINUING TO DEVELOP BANDS OF MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINFALL
OVER MUCH OF SOUTH CENTRAL GEORGIA DURING THE PAST 24 TO 36
HOURS. WIDESPREAD RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 3 TO 5 INCHES WITH
LOCALIZED TOTALS OF 6 INCHES OR MORE HAVE ALREADY FALLEN ACROSS
MUCH OF THE WATCH AREA. DUE TO THE SLOW MOTION OF THE LOW
PRESSURE SYSTEM WHICH IS ALSO MAINTAINING A FETCH OF DEEP LAYER
MOISTURE FROM THE ATLANTIC OCEAN...SEVERAL MORE INCHES OF RAIN
COULD FALL IN THE ALREADY VULNERABLE AREAS.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A FLOOD WATCH MEANS THERE IS POTENTIAL FOR FLOODING BASED ON THE
TOTAL RAIN THAT HAS ALREADY FALLEN...COMBINED WITH THE POTENTIAL
FOR ADDITIONAL HEAVY RAINFALL. IF THIS ADDITIONAL RAINFALL BECOMES
HEAVY ENOUGH OVERNIGHT AND TUESDAY MORNING...PROPER DRAINAGE WILL
BE GREATLY INHIBITED BY THE ALREADY SATURATED GROUND...AND EXCESSIVE
RUNOFF COULD ESCALATE FLOODING IN URBAN...LOW LYING...AND POOR
DRAINAGE AREAS.

YOU SHOULD MONITOR LATER FORECASTS AND BE ALERT FOR POSSIBLE
FLOOD WARNINGS. THOSE LIVING IN AREAS PRONE TO FLOODING SHOULD BE
PREPARED TO TAKE ACTION SHOULD FLOODING DEVELOP.
