THE LATEST

Flash flood watch, 2 a.m. Thursday through 2 a.m. Thursday:  Rounds of moderate to heavy rain with embedded thunderstorms are expected through late Wednesday night. Widespread rainfall totals of three to five inches are forecast across the watch area. Locally higher amounts will be possible, especially across the higher terrain of northeast Georgia. There is potential for localized flash flooding and quick rises on rivers and creeks, given the wet ground and normal to above normal streamflows across the watch area.

OUTLOOK

Total rainfall amounts of 3 to 5 inches are forecast across much of north and parts of central Georgia, roughly along and northwest of a line from Columbus to Forsyth to Athens. Locally higher rainfall amounts will be possible, especially in areas where the training of heavier rain or stronger storms occurs. Some uncertainty still remains with respect to the forecast rainfall totals and where the exact axis of heaviest rain sets up.

Sunday’s rainfall: 1.15 inches.
