The National Weather Service in Peachtree City issued a flood watch for areas in the north half of the state, including Rockdale County, which is on the southern tip of the watch area, from 8 a.m. to this evening.

"An upper-level trough will sweep from the central gulf coast into the mid-Mississippi valley today. Deep gulf moisture will accompany this system as it moves northeastward," read the watch.

"Rainfall amounts of 1.5 to 2 inches are expected across much of north Georgia during the day today. Rainfall amounts may exceed 2 inches in parts of north central and northeast Georgia. The heaviest rain is expected to fall from mid-morning through afternoon, then gradually dminish from the south."

Although the ground is wet from previous rain, the watch said a "significant flood event is not anticipated."
