Atlanta’s waterlogged June continued to get even soggier Tuesday, with more rain streaming into north Georgia from the west.
Scattered showers soaked the metro area throughout the day. Heavy winds and thunderstorms again brought down trees and power lines, this time east of Atlanta.
In Walton County, an afternoon storm made a mess of roads and yards when dozens of trees and power lines were knocked down, a spokeswoman for the sheriff’s office said. No major damage was reported.
Thunderstorms continued east through the Athens area Tuesday evening, and scattered showers were possible metro-wide, according to David Chandley, Channel 2 Action News meteorologist.
Rain is expected to move out of the area by 10 p.m., Chandley said. Partly cloudy skies are in the forecast for the remainder of the week, with temperatures expected to reach the upper 80s through the weekend.
