Rain and wet weather will continue for much of the remainder of this week, and may bring with it flash flooding in some areas, particularly in north and central Georgia.

Rounds of showers and isolated thunderstorms, with locally heavy rainfall, will continue through tonight. Locally heavy rainfall could lead to flash flooding. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for much of north and central Georgia.

Tomorrow, continued rounds of showers and thunderstorms can be expected across north and central Georgia through Thursday.

The main concern will be heavy rain and flash flooding. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for much of north and central Georgia through early Thursday morning.

Widespread rainfall totals of 3 to 5 inches, with higher localized amounts, are expected over much of the area by Thursday morning. Creeks and smaller streams could flood quickly and larger rivers will rise to bankfull or higher by the latter half of the week.

Outside of the heavy rain, a few stronger storms could also produce gusty winds and frequent lightning.
