Heavy rain is expected to trigger flash flooding Thursday in Middle Georgia and the northern half of the state.
A slow-moving cold front could bring massive rain up to three inches in some thunderstorms and widespread totals of one to two inches, according to the National Weather Services flash flood watch from 2 p.m. Thursday until 4 a.m. Friday.
The ground is already saturated which means additional rain will likely run off.
Drivers are urged not to take chances with flooded streets and to turn around instead of trying to go through standing water.
The watch includes Macon, Warner Robins and Milledgeville and covers Bibb, Houston, Peach, Jones, Crawford, Taylor, Macon, Monroe, Baldwin, Washington, Twiggs, Jasper, Putnam, Hancock, Clarke, Lamar, Greene, Taliaferro, Oconee, Oglethorpe, Wilkes, Rockdale, Walton, Newton, Morgan, Heard, Coweta, Fayette, Clayton, Spalding, Henry, Butts, Warren, Troup, Meriwether, Pike, Upson, Glascock, Jefferson, Harris, Talbot, Muscogee, Chattahoochee, Marion, and Schley counties.
