Bottom Line

# Tropical Depression Jeanne moving across southern Georgia with maximum sustained winds near 35 mph, as of 2 p.m. ET


# Isolated tornadoes are possible from eastern Georgia through southern North Carolina


# Will move up across the eastern states Mon./Tue. with heavy rain and flooding

Heavy rain from Jeanne continues to push northward out of Georgia into the Carolinas overnight and into the Middle Atlantic region by Tuesday morning. Flooding rains and a few tornadoes can be expected. The chance for tornadoes may stretch from eastern North Carolina to the Del-Mar-Va Peninsula .


The center of Jeanne will track northward and then northeastward overnight. Heavy rainfall, from four to eight inches, may fall in the southern Appalachians.


Flood watches are posted from much of eastern Georgia northward Virginia. Significant flooding is again possible over the southern Appalachians. There are also flood watches for late Tuesday over parts of southern New York and northeast Pennsylvania.


Elsewhere, in the Atlantic Basin, Tropical Storm Lisa is well away from any land masses.


In the western Pacific, Typhoon Meari will approach the island of Kyushu in Japan by late Wednesday but it should weaken to a tropical storm by then.
