* portions of northeast Georgia... western North Carolina and
upstate South Carolina... including the following areas... in
northeast Georgia... Elbert... Franklin... Habersham... Hart...
Rabun and Stephens. In western North Carolina... Avery... Burke

* Through Friday morning.

* Increasing moist southeast flow and a stationary frontal
boundary across central South Carolina will support prolonged
heavy rainfall across the warned area. Additionally... embedded
thunderstorms will be capable of rain rates exceeding 2 inches
per hour in isolated locations.

* Water levels are expected to rise in streams and creeks across
the warned area. Poorly drained urban areas... and low lying
areas near streams and creeks... will be especially vulnerable
to flooding. Ponding of water on roads will be possible as
well. The area from Anderson to Greenville in South Carolina
will see the first impacts... as heavy rainfall has already
occurred there.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
