The afternoon showers that fell on parts of North Georgia are expected to increase overnight and lead to a wet morning commute, Channel 2 Action News reported.

Rain was reported earlier in Bartow, Paulding and Haralson counties, when the air was so dry the moisture evaporated before hitting the ground.

“The air is still pretty dry, but we’ve got a lot of clouds right now,” Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Brian Monahan said.

Currently, it’s 57 degrees in Atlanta. 

A cold front arrives Tuesday with more rain, according to the latest forecast.

Rain chances are forecast to increase from 20 percent Monday to 100 percent Tuesday, Channel 2 reported.

“Expect wet roads (Tuesday) morning,” Channel 2 meteorologist Karen Minton said.

However, showers are expected to clear later Tuesday. Parts of metro Atlanta could get 2 inches of rain by 6 p.m., Minton said.

The front won’t just usher in rain. Colder air moves in behind the front, according to the latest forecast.

Forecast lows drop from 50 degrees Tuesday to 39 Wednesday.

“There will be a significant drop by Thursday,” and likely cooler than average temps through mid-March, Minton said.
