4:15pm Radar Check | News
There are a few scattered showers out there this afternoon. We have one cluster of showers northeast of Atlanta just north of Lake Lanier. That area of light to moderate rain is moving to the northeast. There are a few additional showers in the metro area. There is another area of rain southwest of the city in southern Fayette county and down toward LaGrange. Just over the state line into Alabama, there is another area of rain that has a little thunder and lightning with it. All of these clusters are moving to the northeast.
For the rest of the evening, we continue with a 30% chance that you will get hit by a shower. The main area of rain is still off to the west. That will continue moving toward us on Monday. Earlier in the day Monday, we will have just a few scattered showers. It will be later in the day and into the evening Monday when the area of persistant rain moves in. There will be some heavier showers embedded in that late Monday into early Tuesday. I'm still predicting 1-2 inches of rain before it all ends late Tuesday. Some parts of northwest Georgia have the potential of seeing more than 2 inches of rain.
The threat for severe thunderstorms is low. We may hear some thunder and lightning late Monday into early Tuesday, but it looks like these will stay below the "severe" threshold.
After this rain moves to the east late Tuesday, a cold front will usher in some cooler air. Temps by Wednesday and Thursday morning will move down to the 50s with afternoon highs in the 70s.
