The ATL! One of the largest cities in the country, and the backyard of the Weather Channel. How’s it going down there?
At 152PM, ET, Atlanta was reporting mostly cloudy skies and a temperature of 73. A broad, slowly devolving trough over the Lower Mississippi Valley was working to incorporate moisture into the southeastern US, including some clouds in north Georgia, slowly rising dew points and showers and storms much further to the southeast.
The nature of this system will leave it ill defined as it generally steers towards Atlanta. Expect a couple of days of garden variety thunderstorms in Atlanta Sunday and Monday, though as the low level trough tries to move over the Appalachians with little to no motivation, it will begin to expend copious amounts of moisture on Atlanta Monday morning. Two and a half days of rain in Atlanta could certainly mean a threat for some flooding in some places to begin the week.

It’s going to be cloudy and a little nasty in Atlanta. I like the cooler forecasts of TWC and Atlanta, but it being the south, any little bit of sun will bump those temperatures. The local ATL radar is down, but you can see the majority of the rain is well off to the west at this point.
