Heavy Rain now in Metro Atlanta

Heavy Rain now in Metro Atlanta

Heavy rain is now falling in the metro Atlanta area. This storm will not be producing major winds or hail, but it will be dropping some seriously heavy rain. We could see more than an inch in parts of the metro as this storm intensifies and slowly moves towards the south at around 10mph. A few more showers are possible throughout the evening, all should be below severe limits.

Showers Moving Through Atlanta

Showers Moving Through Atlanta

Showers and a few t-storms continue to move through metro Atlanta as they head towards the south. Most of the rain is just on the south side of the perimeter right on the border of Fulton and Dekalb, mainly near Panthersville. There could be some areas of brief heavy rain with this cell, but it will be brief and it will move out. There are a few more storms on the north side of the perimeter near Roswell and Sandy Springs. This one also could produce brief heavy rain as it moves towards the south at 20mph.

Heavy rain drenched the women's road cycling race Sunday along with strong winds. However, that didn’t keep the thousands of fans from coming out to support their athletes along the 87 mile course. Standing on the sidelines pales in comparison to what the riders themselves had to battle in order to maintain control of their bikes as they hovered across pools of rainwater.

"It was a fantastic atmosphere despite the rain,” said Simon Ashmore, who attended the women’s cycling race.

Weather dictates cycling. On everything from what they should wear, what they should eat/drink, what equipment to use, and what methods/maneuvers they should apply during the race.

Still Some Showers, Severe Threat Diminishing

Thanks to the rain we had earlier today, the threat for severe weather for the rest of the day is going down.  We will still have a few showers and possible t-storms, but any threat for widespread severe weather is going down.

The rain from this morning helped to stabilize our atmosphere.  Now, the threat for severe weather shifts to the south and east.  Here's an explanation in the updated webcast.
