ATLANTA - Thunderstorms hit metro Atlanta early Friday and showers are expected to continue into the weekend.
The area received more than an inch of rain, and Channel 2 meteorologist David Chandley said more rain is developing Friday evening, “especially in the overnight hours.”
“It’s going to be cloudy, cool and drizzly through most of the day,” Chandley said.
The National Weather Service issued a flood warning for Forsyth County on Friday morning. The warning is in effect until further notice. Meanwhile, most of the rest of metro Atlanta is under a flood watch until 6 p.m. The biggest risk is for minor flooding south of Atlanta, where an additional two to four inches of rain may fall overnight.
Rain will continue into Saturday morning before moving out by noon, Chandley said. He said thunderstorms are on tap for Monday. His five-day forecast shows a chance of rain every day, except Sunday.
Highs in the upper-40s are expected Friday, but may reach the upper-60s later this weekend.
We'll have the latest forecast beginning on Channel 2 Action News at 4.
