Atlanta weather: Rain through Sat morning

More  is expected throughout the night and into  Saturday morning. And area creeks and rivers could possibly crest over their banks overnight.

There is a 90 percent chance of rain for the rest of Friday, dropping to 20 percent Saturday morning, NWS meteorologist, Mike Leary told the AJC.

Saturday will be mostly cloudy in Atlanta, with highs in the upper 40s followed by lows around 30 degrees.

Mostly sunny skies are predicted for Sunday, with highs in the upper 40s.

The next chance of rain will be on Monday night, continuing through the day on Tuesday, forecasters said.

And flood warnings for several North Georgia creeks and rivers were issued for the north fork of Peachtree Creek in DeKalb and Fulton counties, Big Creek in Fulton and Forsyth counties, the Alcovy River in Gwinnett and Walton counties and Lookout Creek in Dade County through Saturday.

Flights are also delayed at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Wind and rain has caused delays to flights leaving and arriving, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. They advise that customers check their airlines for delays.

But if you are trying to get anywhere close to Baltimore or Washington, D.C. you are out of luck.

A major snow storm has developed across the Mid-Atlantic States and is expected to dump 8 to 24 inches in the Washington, D.C., area by Saturday evening.

A state of emergency has been declared by Delaware Gov. Jack Markell, according to CNN. All vehicles were ordered off the roads by 10 p.m.

As a result, Delta canceled more than 300 flights and are expected to cancel more on Saturday, Chris Kelley, Delta spokeswoman told the AJC.

“These cancellations are directly tied to the weather system in the Baltimore-DC area,” she said. “They certainly impact markets and cities elsewhere, especially in the area.”

AirTran is also canceling flights. More than 180 flights have been canceled through Sunday with the majority of the cancellations being for Friday and Saturday, Christopher White, AirTran spokesman told the AJC.

“Atlanta flights to the northeast and Mid-Atlantic are most effected,” he said, “With the majority of them being to LaGuardia in New York and Baltimore.”

If you are trying to head north on Greyhound, you may be out of luck.  Maureen Richmond, Greyhound spokeswoman, told the AJC they are experiencing either delays or cancelations, affecting trips into New York, D.C., Charlotte and New Jersey. But if heading west, there are no problems, she said.

And Amtrak has canceled  some trains in the mid Atlantic.  Trains through Atlanta are not affected except for previously scheduled track repair cancellations.
