TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — While organized severe thunderstorms have diminished and the earlier severe thunderstorm watch has expired across local counties, leftover areas of rain and thunder are forecast to move through most of our counties late tonight and early Tuesday.

High rainfall accumulations are estimated to have occurred in Cook, Berrien, and Lanier counties. Radar estimates range from 2" to 4" within and around the Georgia Highway 37 corridor. Additional heavy rain is expected late tonight. A flash flood warning will continue in this region until 1:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Most thunderstorms are projected to stay below severe thresholds, but frequent lightning, wind gusts around 40 to 50 mph, and some small hail can be experienced.

Please have several ways to get alerts for warnings as the line of storms moves through.

Sporadic power outages are also possible, so make sure all electronic devices are charged.
