Lake Lanier was 4 feet above full pool on Monday, and water levels in the past weeks have been the highest since the 1960s, GPB News previously reported. A flash flood watch remains in effect until 7 p.m.
The National Weather Service expected up to 6 inches of rain in parts of Middle Georgia this week.
The past seven days have been quite wet across much of the South and central U.S., NWS said.
A stalled front across the Southeast and another disturbance dropping into the Northern Plains will join forces tomorrow and form a rapidly strengthening low pressure system off the NE coast.
