Good Monday.  As the local waterways struggle to recede, more heavy rain is on the way this afternoon. We have cloudy skies with just a few sprinkles this morning.  This afternoon we will see a line of thunderstorms moving in that will bring heavy rain, gusty winds and lots of lightning.  Rainfall amounts will range from .5" to 1" widespread with locally higher amounts up to 2".  Winds in the valley will range from 10-20 mph.  In the mountains there is a WIND ADVISORY in effect as winds will blow from the south at 20-35 mph and gusts to 40 mph.  The high will reach 72, one degree shy of the 1889 record of 73.

The timing of the storms will bring the line over the Cumberland Plateau 11am and 2pm, through the Tennessee Valley between 2pm and 6pm, and into the Blue Ridge Mtns. between 6pm and 9pm.

Overnight we will clear out and be a bit cooler Tuesday morning with the low dropping to 52.  It will be pleasant Tuesday afternoon with mostly sunny skies and a high of 63.

The front will stall to our south Wednesday.  Right now, rain along that front looks as though it will primarily stay to our south bringing about 3" of rain to Atlanta Wednesday.  If that front drifts a little north of the forecast, we could be in the path of some of that heavy rain.  We will need to keep a close eye on Wednesday as well.

Thursday through the weekend will be dry and cold.  We will see temps by Friday dropping into the 40s for highs and 20s for lows by the weekend.
