Atlanta weather | Rain calms in some spots

Rain that swept across metro Atlanta and wrecked havoc on traffic Tuesday has calmed in some parts, according to Channel 2 Action News.

Early Tuesday, showers were spotted in Rome, Cartersville and Sandy Springs. Downpours drenched freeways and roads in Marietta. And flashes of lightning were reported across Cobb County.

Showers even formed ponds on the road and sent a car spinning into a wall on Ga. 400 south of Holcomb Bridge Road in north Fulton County, according to the WSB 24-hour Traffic Center.

An overturned vehicle crash caused delays in both directions on Roswell Road at Greenbriar Parkway in Cobb. And a crash that led to serious injuries temporarily shut down southbound I-75 at Highway 155 in Henry County.

There is a 40 percent chance of rain Wednesday and Thursday, a 70 percent chance Friday and a 60 percent chance of rain Saturday.

The wet weather will keep temperatures low.

Tuesday’s expected high in Atlanta is 77 degrees.

Temperatures were 70 degrees in Atlanta, 71 degrees in Blairsville and 69 degrees in Griffin just after 7 p.m.
