Tracking Showers and Storms Moving Toward Georgia | News
Another nice day today in Atlanta. We had a few more clouds that mixed in with the sun at times. We were still able to have temperatures that were just a little above average this afternoon. Our high topped of at 67. Clouds will increase even more overnight into Monday.
We are watching a line of showers and thunderstorms that are to our west. That line is moving toward Georgia. This line has prompted a tornado watch for western Texas, parts of NE Louisiana and western Arkansas. These storms will weaken as they move to the east. We aren't worried about any severe weather here in Georgia. We have 2 things that we are watching for Monday. First, an east wind will give us plenty of clouds early Monday. That easterly flow will pick up some Atlantic moisture and kick up a few light showers mainly in east Georgia and parts of the north Georgia mountains early Monday. Second, the main line of showers to the west will begin to move in after lunch in NW Georgia, then progress into the Atlanta area late afternoon into the evening.
We expect to see around a half inch of rain in Atlanta. Areas to the west will pick up a little more. Areas east of Atlanta will get less than a half inch.
Once the rain moves out, the cooler air will move in. Temperatures will drop Tuesday with highs in the low 60s. For the rest of the week, we will have highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s and lows in the low to mid 40s.
