An area of low pressure located inland over northeastern Georgia is producing a large area of showers and heavy rain over portions of the southeastern U.S. The low is expected to move generally northeastward toward the coast of the Carolinas and the mid-Atlantic states and some development of this system is possible later this week if it moves over water.
