Delays remain in a few problem areas, such as I-285 in Cobb County, according to the WSB 24-hour Traffic Center. Two left southbound lanes are blocked near South Cobb Drive.

Hall County is also enduring delays on I-985 near Ga. 53 after a crash blocked a left lane.

Henry County has mostly recovered after a car fire previously blocked all but one I-75 South lane near Ga. 20, according to the Traffic Center.

A line of storms got the day off to a messy start with parts of North Georgia getting soaked, Channel 2 Action News reported. But the morning line of showers weakened as it moved into Middle Georgia, and it’s well southeast of metro Atlanta now, Channel 2 reported.

Off-and-on rain is in the forecast every day this week, according to Channel 2.

Minton said another round of rain, not storms, is expected Wednesday. Rain showers should be more scattered Thursday, she said, before the rain chance picks back up to 60 percent Friday. By the weekend, drier, cooler weather moves in with highs in the 50s.
