Heavy rain that passed through the Atlanta area Wednesday will fade overnight, Channel 2 Action News meteorologists said.


About an inch of rain fell across parts of the metro area, according to Channel 2. Rome picked up more than 2 inches.

The temperatures Wednesday were unusually warm in Atlanta, hitting a high of 66 degrees. That’s well above the average high of 53 for this date.

Currently, the mercury is at 58 degrees.

By the time motorists hit the road for the Thursday morning commute, temps will be in the low 50s, Channel 2 Chief meteorologist Glenn Burns said.

Fog and drizzle will factor into driving conditions, he added.

“Just a damp, cold day,” Burns said.

Friday’s high is expected to be warmer than average and mild temps in the 50s and 60s will continue through the weekend, Burns said. 

But despite cold air moving in Sunday, Georgians aren’t likely to see snow on Christmas Day.
