Heavy rain is slowly inching east, away from Atlanta. Most of our cities saw anywhere from 3 to 5 inches of rain, and that is creating some local river and creek flooding. Of course, some minor street flooding will be an issue too. So, if you see some water-covered roads, just turn around and try to find an alternate route.
I-75 south and I-20 east will be the worst travel zones until midday, and then some gradual improvement likely will take place Monday night. CBS Atlanta Meteorologist Jim Loznicka says after the rain ends, much colder weather return.
According to Jim, the record rainfall Sunday will continue to create some localized flooding through Christmas Eve. A few more showers will persist on Monday afternoon, and temperatures are falling as a cold front approaches from the northwest.
Monday: Another round of rain around midday, then colder and windy. High of 55. Northwest wind 10-15 mph.
Monday night: Rain ends, and significantly colder, with lows in the upper 20s. Wind NW 15 mph.
Christmas Eve: Sky clearing, but temperatures struggling. Only around 45 for a high with a northwest wind up to 20 mph.
