A brief break from heavy rain, but more showers build in overnight

floodtuesday

We’ll see a less active pattern today as the front stalls over our region. There is still a chance of a few, light showers but nothing to the extent of what we saw yesterday. Showers then ramp back up overnight with a few possible thunderstorms throughout Wednesday. A cold front will then move through late Thursday/Friday, bringing cool, dry and sunny conditions behind it – just in time for the New Year.

With more rain moving in overnight through Wednesday, flooding still remains a threat. The Flood Warning for the Chattahoochee River has now been extended until Thursday morning. As of 10:00 p.m. EST last night, the river stood at 28.9 feet and falling. Before the rain hit yesterday, the river was at 27.5 feet. (Flood stage is 27 feet). The Riverwalk will see areas up to a foot deep and remains closed.
