ATLANTA — North Georgia and the Atlanta metropolitan area have seen dry weather over the last few days, but as Friday approaches, our prediction indicates a change. Anticipate more cloud cover and the possibility of a few isolated showers.
Our chances of rain return on Saturday in the form of sporadic showers. There will be little possibility of rain in Atlanta and most of it will fall in far north Georgia. On Saturday, there is a greater likelihood of rain in the late afternoon, with some areas of heavier precipitation expected around the state lines of North Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia.
More rain is expected to fall on the Atlanta region on Sunday morning, with periods of heavy rain and maybe a few thunderclaps. Even into the afternoon, there might be some persistent rain, though it might not be as common.
Rain is expected to fall in waves; on Sunday night, there’s a chance of another wave, and on Monday, there could be further rounds of rain, possibly accompanied with widespread showers and thunderstorms. Monday afternoon rain will start to clear away, with a few sporadic showers continuing into Tuesday morning.
By Tuesday morning, there’s only a minor risk of rain, and by the afternoon, things will be drier.
North Georgia is expected to receive one to three inches of rain over the course of the upcoming week, with isolated regions perhaps receiving up to four inches. Georgia’s far north will probably have the greater totals.
