We could reach a weather milestone today! We are just a half inch away from receiving a year's worth of rain in Atlanta. The annual average rain total for Atlanta from Jan-Dec is 49.68". That's how much rain we receive in a typical year. So far this year, we've picked up 49.11". That's just .57" away from a year's worth of rain.

We could go over that total today. Some computer models are predicting close to an inch of rain today. We will watch the totals and let you know when we reach that milestone.

The rain chances will go down a little for the rest of the week. We go down to a 40% chance for showers Monday and Tuesday, then a 30% chance on Wednesday and Thursday. Drier and hotter air will be here for the end of the week.
