ATLANTA (AP) — Forecasters say a storm system and heavy rain is expected to linger in most of Georgia.

The National Weather Service says lightning storms, high wind and heavy rain is expected in most of Georgia through at least 10 p.m.

Forecasters say isolated and scattered afternoon and evening showers are possible throughout the week. Meteorologists say the storms could produce wind gusts, frequent lightning and heavy rain.

The Georgia Environmental Protection Division has also issued an air quality alert for the metro Atlanta area on Wednesday.

Officials say the code orange alert means outdoor air could be unhealthy for children and people who have breathing issues. Officials say ozone concentrations will be highest in the late afternoon and early evening and people with heart or lung issues should limit outdoor activity.
