Grab your umbrellas this morning because heavy rain continues moving through north Georgia.

Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Brian Monahan says all of north Georgia is under a flood watch until Monday night as waves of heavy rain and storms move throughout the region.

A level 2 out of 5 risk for severe weather has been issued south of Interstate 20. A level 1 has also been issued for the area north of I-20.

Main storm impacts include torrential downpours and damaging wind gusts throughout north Georgia.

A cold front will move across the area Monday evening, eventually ending the severe weather risk – and wet weather.

Monday evening, drier weather will move through the region.

Here’s what you can expect:

· Heavy rain and possible flooding
