The National Weather Service has placed all of Northwest Georgia and much of Northeast Alabama under a tornado watch now until 11 tonight.
Flash flood watch through 8 p.m. Thursday:
The watch has been extended by 12 hours over concerns of new storms due today, Thursday. Rounds of moderate to heavy rain with embedded thunderstorms are expected through late Wednesday night. Widespread rainfall totals of two to six inches are forecast across the watch area. Locally higher amounts of up to seven to eight inches 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. Some rivers and creeks have already responded to previous heavy rainfall.
