Here comes the rain. A cold front is pushing rain into west Georgia from Alabama. Those showers will continue moving toward the northeast making it into the metro area late afternoon into evening.
At 4pm, showers were crossing the GA/AL line with some pockets of heavier rain extending into Heard and Troup counties. That cluster of heavy rain was extending into the western parts of Coweta County. Additional showers will continue moving that rain toward Atlanta.
The main threats are pockets of heavy rain. We will also have some thunder and lightning in some isolated areas. The severe weather threat will remain well to the north. The Storm Prediction Center has the "slight" risk for severe into Tennessee and Kentucky. Even though we are not outlooked for severe storms, it is possible that we could have 1 or 2 isolated cells that will have some stronger winds with it.
We could see rain totals around an inch through early Monday. This system will stick with us overnight into the morning hours. The commute looks wet Monday, but the rest of the day will improve. The showers will push out of the metro area by 9am, then clearing skies and cooler air will be here for the rest of the day.
Karen has fizzled in the Gulf. It was downgraded to a tropical depression Saturday night. It is now just a remnant low as it travels near the Gulf coast. The National Hurricane Center issued its last advisory on the system at 11am Sunday.
