The storm's path is forecasted to cross Georgia, and the effects felt could be more intense than originally predicted.
A rare tropical storm warning is officially in effect for parts of North Georgia, including Metro Atlanta, whereas the region was originally only under a flash flood watch.
The tropical storm warning is in effect until 11 a.m. Thursday morning, as Zeta is expected to bring heavy winds and rain overnight on Wednesday into early Thursday.
Metro Atlanta has not been under a tropical storm warning since 2017.
The flash flood watch is also still in effect for Wednesday and Thursday, with 2 to 4 inches of rain expected.
The storm is likely to cause power outages, but Georgia power shared that it, "constantly monitors changing weather conditions and is prepared to respond to service interruptions that might occur because of severe weather."
