Flash flood watch issued by National Weather Service through Saturday night

Additional 1-3 inches rainfall expected

The National Weather Service in Peachtree City issued a flash flood watch from Friday afternoon through late Saturday night for 44 counties, including Rockdale and Newton.

The NWS predicts rainfall of 1 to 3 inches across the watch area, with 3 to 5 inches in areas especially across the north Georgia mountains.

"Soils remian saturated from widespread heavy rain across the region last weekend. Thus any rain that develops will likely all run off into creeks and streams, leading to rapid rises," the warning read. "This event is not expected to be as widespread or significant as last weekend, but localized areas, especially across the mountains, will likely experience flash flooding."
