Overnight, expect to see heavy rain, strong wind and even possible tornadoes. Trees and powerlines could fall and flooding is likely.

Many school districts preemptively closed to keep people off the road during the strongest part of the storm, which should be in north Georgia from about 3 a.m. to 9 a.m.
