Mother’s Day was a “washout,” as moderate rain arrived in the metro Atlanta Sunday.
But the worst is over, according to Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Katie Walls. She said the showers and storms will be scattered going into the evening ahead of an approaching cold front.
A few strong storms are possible for the metro area, Walls said, but the main threat for severe weather is further south. Gusty winds and small hail are the primary concern in Atlanta.
By the end of the weekend, some parts of North Georgia could receive 4 inches of rain or more.
However, additional rainfall will be minimal Sunday night as the wet weather begins to clear out.
The storms should move south by Sunday night and clear out completely by the start of the work week, Channel 2 meteorologist Eboni Deon said. Sunny skies are expected to return Monday as temperatures reach the mid-70s, setting the tone for the next several days.
