The area surrounding Ocmulgee River in Macon might experience some minor flooding early Sunday morning if predictions hold true.
As more rain is forecasted to move into the area Saturday night, the river is expected to rise to 20 feet after midnight. Thats 2 feet above flood stage, said George Wetzel, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Peachtree City.
Falling Creek near east Juliette is also near flood stage, according to the National Weather Service.
Its not as bad as it could be, but we could see additional rain tonight, Wetzel said.
An additional half inch to 1 inch of rain is expected Saturday night into early Sunday morning, he said.
The rain is expected to clear Sunday, with temperatures mostly sunny and reaching the upper 60s. But severe weather is predicted to move back into the area late Monday and Tuesday morning, he said.
