FIRST ALERT | Rain increasing across North Georgia tonight
ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - Rain is expanding from southwest, to northeast, this evening. Widespread wet, gloomy weather is in the forecast for much of North Georgia overnight. Have late evening plans? A jacket and an umbrella are both a good idea.
However, not everyone sees steadier rains at the same time. Showers are forecast to gradually increase west of Metro Atlanta as we approach sunset. In the meantime, hit-or-miss rain will be occurring across the area. More widespread rain that develops west, gradually shifts east after sunset. The wettest weather is forecast to occur between 8 p.m. and 3 a.m. or so.
There is zero risk of severe weather, locally. Rain may become briefly heavy in a few spots. But, the risk of street flooding remains low. The greatest rainfall, still generally less than 1/2″, is forecast to fall from LaGrange to Atlanta, up to Gainesville and points west of that line. Less rain is expected further east.
Monday begins gloomy with a few showers around mainly east of Metro Atlanta. Out-the-door temperatures will be around where they were when you went to sleep Sunday evening; upper 50s and lower 60s across the Metro. Drier weather builds in from the west through the day. The chance of rain ends by mid-afternoon (even earlier around Atlanta and points west). Temperatures peak in the upper 60s and lower 70s Monday afternoon. Clearing is expected late in the day.
The forecast features dry and seasonably cool weather for trick-or-treating.
Have a wonderful week,
