The National Weather Service in Charleston has issued flash flood watch for our for tonight through Friday morning.
It is scheduled to start at 11 p.m. as a new weather front moves through the area.
In the words of the service, the front will wobble over South Georgia and Northern Florida through tonight night before it lifts north early Friday.
These systems will combine to produce prolonged rain across portions of Southeast Georgia, mainly south of Interstate 16.
Areas in the flash flood watch have already received 1 to 3 inches of rain through Wednesday morning. Additional rain amounts of 3-5 inches could fall through Friday morning, prompting the watch.
The Liberty County-Hinesville Emergency Management Agency said area residents should especially be wary if heavy rain falls in a short time in their area. Ditches and streams may fill quickly and overflow.
In addition, dirt and poorly drained roads may become impassable. Motorists are urged to find other routes if flooded roads are encountered, especially if the water is flowing.
A flash flood watch means there is a potential for flash flooding based on current forecasts. Monitor the latest forecasts and be alert for possible flash flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action if flooding.
Liberty county emergency operation center will continue to monitor this hazardous weather.
