The National Weather Service issued a freeze warning for northwest Georgia Thursday evening.

Updated 4 p.m.: The National Weather Service has canceled the flood watch for Cherokee County, effective at 3:15 p.m. A social media post from the Cherokee County Emergency Management Agency stated, "While the heavier rain has pushed eastward and the main threat of flooding has ended, some lingering runoff could result in some minor rises of creeks, streams, and low lying areas."

It will feel more like winter as November begins in Cherokee County, as the National Weather Service has placed the county under a freeze warning starting at 11 p.m. tonight and will last until 10 a.m. Friday.

Portions of Northwest Georgia will remain under a flood watch until 8 p.m., with the freeze warning setting in shortly thereafter. According to the National Weather Service, the overnight temperatures in Cherokee County could drop to as low as 31 degrees, with the projected high on Friday to rise to just 56 degrees. The current freeze warning zone for tonight extends from southern Ohio and western West Virginia all the way to northeastern Texas and southeastern Oklahoma.
