Portions of Georgia are receiving moderate to heavy rainfall today as a system slowly moves through.

As of 12:30 p.m., National Weather Service radar showed a band of storms extending northeast from Valdosta through Waycross, Hinesville, Statesboro, and into Augusta. The system has already drenched south Georgia with up to 2.5 inches of rain over a 24-hour period. It's also brought wind gusts up to 45 m.p.h.

Minor flooding has been reported for some rivers and creeks in south Georgia due to the storms.

The forecast for the remainder of Thursday calls for moderate to heavy rainfall to continue, with rain possible through midnight for portions of north and most of middle Georgia. There will be some rain chances extending through tonight.
