ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Although it’s quiet right now in Atlanta, rain is on the way and some will be locally heavy by Tuesday night.

The rainy weather precedes a cold front, which sweeps through by Wednesday afternoon. That front will cool us off again for a few days later in the week.

Rain totals are forecast right around 1 inch for most cities, which will aggravate river and creek flooding and create some local road ponding.

Right now, it appears the rain starts by the Tuesday afternoon rush before winding down a few hours before the Wednesday morning rush. In any event, travel Tuesday night and Wednesday will be a little slippery with those wet roads.

Stay with CBS46 as we fine tune “Atlanta’s Most Accurate Forecast” in our newscasts at Noon, 4pm, 5pm and 6pm.
