ATLANTA - You'll want to pack an umbrella for today -- and keep it handy for the next week.
We've been warning you that a long stretch of rain is coming, and Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Brad Nitz said areas could see more than 1/2-foot of rain in north Georgia before it's all over next week.
There could be flooding for rivers and creeks and some other low-lying areas that could be difficult to travel through.
We're using the most advanced weather technology to show you when the rain will move into your area, on Channel 2 Action News Saturday AM, starting at 6 a.m.
What you can get only by watching Channel 2 Action News:
- Updated hour-by-hour cloud and rain forecast showing the timing of the waves of rain over the next several days
- Updated potential rainfall amounts through next week
- Updated hour-by-hour jet stream forecast showing the Pacific moisture flowing our way
Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Brian Monahan said that it's very possible that, with some minor interruption, the wet weather pattern will last into March.
We're entering a wet pattern for the next week, probably longer. 7 day rainfall totals will be a half a foot or more.— Brad Nitz (@BradNitzWSB) February 15, 2019
There is a flood risk for rivers, streams, and creeks next week.
