portions of the coasts of Georgia and southern South Carolina this
morning.

RAINFALL: Julia is expected to produce 3 to 6 inches of rain near
the Georgia and South Carolina coastlines through Friday afternoon.
Isolated totals of 10 inches are possible.  This rainfall could lead
to flash flooding.  Flooding may be further compounded with
persistent strong onshore flow reducing river and stream discharges.
Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches are possible across
northeast Florida today.

and southern South Carolina today.
