RAIN RETURNS TO THE FORECAST FOR TODAY, EARLY PART OF THE WEEKEND

After a few cool but dry days, rain returns to the forecast...and in a big way.  A large area of low pressure has developed in the Gulf of Mexico, and will be pushing through North Florida today and tomorrow.  As we're on the north side of that Low, we're looking at cooler air being drawn into the region, and rain spreading up from the south.

Rain will slowly build in from the south through the morning hours, mainly light at first.  Once we get to the late afternoon, most of North Georgia will be seeing at least light rain, with moderate to heavy rain bands likely late in the day and in the evening.  This rain will continue overnight and into the early hours of Saturday, before we start to see some clearing.  Wrap-around moisture will keep spotty showers in North Georgia a possibility through Saturday.

Rain totals will be heaviest in areas south of Atlanta with the possibility of 2-3" the closer you get to Macon (counties around Macon and points southward are under a Flood Watch). Farther north toward Atlanta expect 1 to 1.5" of rain, and then under an inch of rain in areas north of Atlanta.  Good news -- although Saturday won't be a perfect day, Easter Sunday is looking lovely, with highs in the lower 70s and plenty of sun.
