Shows and thunderstorms are forecast throughout the day, but the strongest chance of heavy rain won't start until this evening when enough precipitation is forecast to possibly cause flooding on Big Creek in North Fulton.

Some showers and thunderstorms could produce locally heavy rains over portions of north Georgia that are already saturated leading to flash flooding of small creeks, streams and low-lying flood-prone areas. Storm total rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches are possible for north Georgia Thursday afternoon through …
