Investigators have not said whether the heavy overnight rain contributed to a multi-vehicle wreck that shut down I-285 northbound on the west side of town for a couple of hours.
A tractor-trailer hauling sewage sludge and a dumptruck loaded with sand overturned in the wreck, which happened just north of I-20. All lanes of I-285 were reopened by 5 a.m.
At 10:30 a.m. Monday, an area of light to moderate rain covered much of the northern suburbs, and stretched well back into Alabama, while radar showed heavier rain moving into south Georgia from the southwest.
Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Karen Minton said isolated showers would be likely Monday afternoon across metro Atlanta, followed by heavier rain again on Tuesday into Wednesday.
Minton put the chance of rain at 80 percent Monday, 90 percent Tuesday and 60 percent Wednesday.
Afternoon highs will be in the low 60s Monday and mid-50s Tuesday and Wednesday, with overnight lows in the mid-40s.
Thursday and Friday should be sunny, with highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s.
