Authorities urge caution on Forsyth County roads as rain continues

FORSYTH COUNTY — Forsyth County experienced minor road flooding Monday morning as heavy rainfall passed through the area, and more rain is in the forecast for the week ahead.

Motorists were cautioned against driving without headlights and on roads that dip into standing water, especially during peak commute times, until a flood warning expires Wednesday night.

Photos posted online by the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office showed minor flooding on Kemp, Mullinax and Tidwell roads, as well as Buford Highway (Hwy. 20) at Vistoria Drive.

The flood warning issued by the National Weather Service focused on Big Creek in south Forsyth and north Fulton.

“The river will continue rising to near 9.9 feet by Tuesday morning. The river will fall below flood stage Wednesday early afternoon,” according to the weather service report.

Severe thunderstorms are possible Monday night, with patchy drizzle forecast Tuesday and Wednesday before the chances of rain increase for Friday and on into the weekend.
