    ATLANTA - It’s expected to be a picture-perfect Tuesday afternoon across north Georgia as temperatures climb into the 60s.

    However, clouds will increase Tuesday night into Wednesday, and rain chances increase later on Wednesday.

    “We’ll have another day with a big range in temperatures Wednesday,” Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Brian Monahan said. 

    Monahan expects temperatures in the 40s and 50s in northeast Georgia, while temperatures should be in the 50s and 60s from Atlanta south and west.

    “Be prepared for more rain over the next 48 hours,” Severe Weather Team 2 Chief Meteorologist Glenn Burns said. “Rain could be especially heavy in our far northern counties.”

    The total rainfall Wednesday into Thursday will average 1 to 3 inches, with highest amounts across the mountains.

    “Some spots in far north Georgia may see a little more than 3 inches of rainfall,” Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Brad Nitz said.
