Possible rainfall amounts of 3-5 inches have prompted the National Weather Service to issue a flood watch for Gwinnett County.
"Rainfall amounts are going to push our stream and river levels into flood stage most likely," warned local weather expert Steve Brueck of Daculaweather.com. "Be alert to ponding on the roadways as you travel and don't drive into standing water unless you know it's safe."
The potential for severe weather continues for the Dacula and Buford area on Tuesday and Wednesday. Read more about the possibility of severe weather in Brueck's latest blog post.
"... for now, be aware and stay alert and make sure you have a working weather radio and multiple ways of receiving weather alerts," Brueck advised. "Also, if you don't have helmets for you and your family, please get one, they are one of the most effective means of protecting your head in case of a tornado."
Damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes are possible in parts of far northwest Georgia tonight and isolated to scattered thunderstorms are expected in Gwinnett ahead of a slow-moving cold front projected to enter the state mid-week.
