• Creek levels a key concern amid flash flood watch

    Updated:

    ATLANTA - Many residents in the metro area will wake up to heavy showers on Monday after a round of downpours Sunday evening.

    A flash flood watch has been issued for the metro area until 1 p.m. Monday, according to Channel 2 meteorologist Brad Nitz.

    “Rain moves in late (Sunday), especially into the evening hours,” said Nitz, who added the wet weather will continue through Tuesday with scattered showers also possible Wednesday.

    “Add it all up and we could see widespread totals between 3 and as much as 5 inches of rain,” Nitz said.

    Creek levels are a major concern amid heavy rainfall.

    Channel 2's Shae Rozzi stopped at Big Creek in Alpharetta, a popular greenway area that's already had some issues with flooding within the last couple of weeks. So far, the water levels do not look threatening and have a few feet to rise before problems arise.

    Meanwhile, Severe Weather Team 2 is predicting a daytime high Monday will be around 63 before dropping to highs in the upper 50s Tuesday and Wednesday. The chance of rain Monday and Tuesday is 90 percent, before dropping to 40 percent Wednesday.

    The nighttime lows will be in the mid 50s Monday, dropping to the mid 40s Tuesday and Wednesday.
