ATLANTA (AP) — Severe weather pushing toward Georgia could bring a threat of tornadoes to northern counties and some central regions of the state.

The National Weather Service says severe thunderstorms are possible Monday night across northern and central Georgia.

Forecasters say the storms could spawn isolated tornadoes, particularly in northwest Georgia in an area that includes the cities of Cedartown, Rome, Dalton and Blue Ridge. Damaging winds and large hail could be seen in some areas.

Forecasters say severe weather, including tornadoes, could continue Tuesday and Wednesday. Portions of north and central Georgia could see some flooding, with 3 to 5 inches of rainfall in this week's forecast.

Georgia Emergency Management Agency spokesman Ken Davis says the agency is expecting to activate its state operations center Monday night to monitor weather conditions.
