ATLANTA -- The National Weather Service in Peachtree City has issued a flood watch now in effect for portions of north and most of central Georgia, mainly along and south of a Cedartown to Alpharetta to Athens line.

This goes through 1 p.m. Wednesday afternoon.

* Moderate to occasionally heavy rainfall will continue to spread across parts of north and most of central Georgia through early Wednesday. Since Sunday afternoon between one and three inches of rainfall has already fallen across much of the area.
An additional 2 to 4 inches is possible across the watch area through Wednesday morning. Locally higher amounts are likely as showers continue to train across the same areas.

* Recent rainfall has made the soil very moist and the additional rainfall amounts could lead to flooding along rivers, small streams and creeks. Also storm drains and ditches may become clogged causing additional street flooding especially along low lying flood prone areas.
