We've already had some spotty showers in the area today.  The main line of showers will move our way later tonight.  This line will have some pockets of moderate to heavy rain with it.  It will even cause a few rumbles of thunder and flashes of lightning.  These storms will stay below "severe" criteria.

The Storm Prediction Center includes all of Georgia in the green shaded area which means "general" thunderstorms.  The SPC also believes these storms won't turn severe.

The line will approach northwest Georgia around 10pm.  The line moves through the metro area overnight.  This rain will linger into the morning hours for your commute.  Plan for a wet drive in to work early on Wednesday.

The rain will push out during the morning hours.  The statewide tornado drill that was scheduled for Wednesday morning has now been postponed until Friday morning.  That way, students won't be confused if it's raining wondering if the drill is real or not.  The clouds will gradually break up, then some sunshine will be with us in the afternoon hours.  

We are still watching another system that hinted at some snow flurries late Sunday night into Monday morning.  The latest models show that most of the moisture will be out of Georgia as the cold air moves in.  This can still change.  We will continue to monitor the timing of the moisture moving out and the cold air moving in.
