ALPHARETTA, Ga. (AP) — A flood warning remains is in effect through Monday evening for a creek in Atlanta's northern suburbs that's expected to rise above flood stage.

The National Weather Service projects that flooding along Big Creek in Alpharetta will cause minor flooding in parts of Fulton and Forsyth counties.

The creek was at 6.2 feet late Sunday night and rising. Flood stage is 7 feet. At that level, woodlands and fields along the waterway typically begin to flood from Cumming in Forsyth County to Alpharetta and Roswell in Fulton County.

Forecasters expect the creek to reach nearly 7.1 feet by late Monday afternoon.
