Rain being forecast in the northeast Georgia area on Friday already is forcing the movement of one of the biggest series finales in the state.

Class 3A No. 1 Jefferson's doubleheader showdown with No. 2 Morgan County for the Region 8-3A title has been moved from Friday to Thursday. First pitch is scheduled for 5 p.m. in Jefferson.

Those two teams open their series Tuesday in Madison with the Bulldogs currently leading the Dragons by one game in the region standings.

AccessWDUN will keep you updated on changes as we get them.
