While muggy air remains after Tropical Depression Nate, which quickly moved through North Georgia, showers in metro Atlanta are expected to diminish overnight, according to Channel 2 Action News.
The storm system knocked down a tree on Mountain Ivy Drive in Roswell, sent a tree down in the 2400 block of West Wesley Road and led to flooding in Marietta near Church Street.
Another tree severely damaged a DeKalb County home when it fell overnight, meteorologist Brian Monahan reported.
Other effects of the storm system were minimal.
Power outages that were up to about 6,000 Sunday were down to 34 outages affecting 386 people Monday as of 9 p.m., according to Georgia Power. The state’s EMCs reported no outages.
And those scattered showers that remain are expected to dry out overnight, Channel 2 reported.
“The widespread rain is already starting to dissipate as it heads out to the east,” Channel 2 meteorologist Brad Nitz said.
Those on-again, off-again showers are keeping temperatures around the 75-degree average high for this time of year.
But temperatures are expected to run about 10 degrees above averge Thursday through the end of the week, Channel 2 reported.
A tropical air mass is to blame for the muggy weather, Nitz said. It could remain through Thursday afternoon.
