    By: Severe Weather Team 2


    ATLANTA - A cold front has stalled out over middle Georgia, helping create storms and showers across the southern part of the Atlanta metro Friday. 

    The high for Friday topped out around 89 degrees, with a dew point temperature of 72 degrees, making for oppressive-feeling humidity throughout the area. 

    A Flash Flood warning has been issued for Gwinnett County until 2:45 a.m. A separate Flash Flood warning has been issued for DeKalb, Cobb and north Fulton counties until 3:30 a.m.

    “Tomorrow morning in the soupy, tropical air, it’s going to be overcast when you wake up,” Severe Weather Team 2 Chief Meteorologist Glenn Burns said. 

    Burns said the area could see scattered or isolated showers throughout the day Saturday. 

    Burns said areas north of Interstate 20 will most likely start seeing showers around lunchtime.

    By mid-afternoon, the front will fall apart. Burns said the greatest chance for storms into Saturday evening will be south of I-20.

    “If you have outdoor plans, there will still be some showers that will be slow to go to bed, even by 11 o’clock tomorrow evening,” Burns said. 

    Burns said another cold front is expected to move in Tuesday, bring a higher chance of rain into the middle of next week.
