Heavy rain ending in Athens, flood threat lingers

The forecast calls for one more day of rain—maybe heavy rain with thunderstorms—for Athens and northeast Georgia, with the possibility of more flooding from creeks and rivers already swollen from the heavy rains of last week.

As another day with heavy rain is in the forecast for most of northeast Georgia comes word that roads that were closed because of last week's flooding have now reopened: crews in Hall and Hart counties say they have repaired roads that were damaged in last Thursday's downpours.

From WSB TV…

Gordon County and Calhoun City Schools are opening on a two-hour delay Thursday over the threat of flooding.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Heavy rain and gusty winds are main threats with this line.
  • Severe weather risk is low, but an isolated strong storm is possible.
  • Additional heavy rain could cause more flooding.
  • Temperatures will drop significantly behind the cold front.
