With heavy rains threatening, most of Middle Georgia is under a flood watch through Wednesday night.

The National Weather Service issued the flood watch Sunday afternoon to begin late Monday night. The National Weather Service revised the watch Monday morning, saying parts of North Georgia could get as much as 5 inches of rain, while parts of Central Georgia could get 1 to 3 inches of rain.

Minor or moderate flooding of some larger creeks and rivers is likely, the agency said.

The National Weather Service’s forecast gave a 30-percent chance of rain Monday night. Rain is likely Tuesday, particularly in the afternoon.

The National Weather Service also warned of a potential for severe weather, mainly Monday night through Tuesday. Possibilities include large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes, the agency said in a hazardous weather outlook.
