Water-logged North Georgia could face additional rain — possibly up to 2 inches — as a storm system passes through the area today, according to the National Weather System in Peachtree City.
Authorities are responding to several wrecks on rain-slicked roads but none serious. Between 1 and 4 p.m., the area had received .43 inches of rain.
Most of North and Central Georgia remain in a flood watch through 10 p.m.
Fueling the system is a low-pressure system in the Mississippi Valley that will deepen as it moves eastward.
“Abundant gulf moisture will continue to spread north in advance of this storm system,” according to a NWS report.
Expect periods of heavy downpours and scattered thunderstorms, although the most likely area for severe thunderstorms will be generally south of a line from Rome to Gainesville.
The weather service predicts that the threat of heavy rain should diminish by late this evening.
Those living in flood-prone areas are advised to keep an eye on the weather.
Also, a wind advisory expected to end at 3 p.m. has been extended to 7 p.m., according to the weather service.
