It appears heavy rains that soaked Forsyth County on Friday caused little damage, though residents may not want to put away their umbrellas just yet.

A spokeswoman for the National Weather Service in Peachtree City said there is a 40 percent chance of showers today and 20 percent chance Monday.

Forsyth County Sheriff’s Capt. Frank Huggins said no major incidents were reported as a result of the wet weather Friday.

“Of course it was raining when they woke up, [so people] knew that they had to drive in the rain and had to exercise caution to and from work and school," Huggins said. "And that’s why there were, to my knowledge, no major incidents.”

According to the weather service, about 1.45 inches of rain had fallen in the area as of Friday afternoon. The rain began Thursday night.
