THE LATEST

The National Weather Service has extended flood watch for all of Northwest Georgia and other parts of the state from 7 a.m. Saturday through 7 p.m. Sunday. Heavy rains will spread over Georgia beginning tonight and continuing through Sunday night. Rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches are possible with isolated higher amounts, especially in the higher terrain of the mountains. These rainfall amounts will likely lead to flooding. * Rivers and creeks remain high from recent rainfall and the smaller basins will be quick to respond to high rainfall rates and associated runoff, particularly over north Georgia.
