PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. -
A tornado watch ended for parts of north Georgia, but the threat of flooding remained after heavy rains on Monday.
The Tornado Watch for much of northwest Georgia, including the metro Atlanta area, expired at 9 p.m.
However, the nearly 48 hours of heavy rain prompted the National Weather Service to issue a Flash Flood Warning in several areas, including parts of DeKalb and Gwinnett counties, east and south Hall County, as well as parts of Meriwether, Pike, Spalding and Upson counties. A flood warning was also issued for Forsyth County.
