ATLANTA - The rain isn't stopping anytime soon, and a flood watch remains in effect for many parts of the FOX 5 viewing area through Thursday evening.

FOX 5 Storm Team meteorologist Joanne Feldman says some spots around north Georgia have received several inches of rain and could get more than an inch more on Wednesday as another heavy band of showers moves from west to east.

The National Weather Service has issued a Flood Watch for most of north Georgia. A Flood Warning is also in effect for Chattooga, Floyd and Gordon counties.

More showers -- some heavy -- are expected Wednesday night and into Thursday. As temperatures drop, some areas north of Atlanta could see a wintry mix by the afternoon or early evening, according to Feldman.

Feldman says accumulation of snow is possible in the highest elevations of the northeast Georgia mountains. None is expected for the metro area.

According to Feldman, drivers could see patches of black ice on overpasses and bridges early Friday morning. But with sunshine returning on Friday, the ice won't remain on the roads for long.
