Heavy rains left left deep water on many Atlanta-area streets as commuters hit the highways, creating dangerous

driving conditions. Motorists encountered deep, fast-moving water and the rain reduced visibility, making the

Monday morning commute hazardous.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for the northern half of Georgia until early Tuesday.

Forecasters predicted up to 4 inches of rain. A flash flood watch is in effect through late tonight for much of north

Georgia. Central Georgia has a flash flood watch through tonight and Southwest Georgia Through tomorrow

morning.
