While the timing of today's rain may not be perfect for your weekend schedule or outdoor plans, it is needed rain. 

Most of Georgia is in moderate to extreme drought. In the southeast states more than 60 percent of the land is experiencing drought conditions. 

If you add in abnormally dry conditions, 80 percent of the southeast is included.

Look for scattered showers and storms today, and even more significant rain to move in on Tuesday. You will get some dry days too. 

Monday will be mostly dry, and the end of the week looks beautiful.
