Scattered rain continues Tuesday

- Scattered showers remain in the forecast today- with the possibility of isolated flash flooding.

A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until 8pm Tuesday for parts of north and northwest Georgia. This includes: Dade, Walker, Catoosa, Chattooga, Floyd, Gordon, Pickens, Gilmer, Fannin, Bartow, Cherokee, Dawson, Lumpkin, Hall, Forsyth, Union, Towns, White, and Whitfield counties.  

These areas have already seen 2"-5" of rain since Sunday.  And while not every one of these areas will measure a lot of rain today, scattered downpours do bring the potential for up to 1" of additional rain.

Much like Monday, scattered showers and occasional thunder/lightning will pass through during any time of day, but there will be plenty of breaks in between them.  When and where it isn't raining, skies will be mostly cloudy, the humidity will be high, and high temperatures will level off just below 80 degrees for many areas.

Wednesday will be a "transition" day with fewer scattered showers and brighter skies.  As a cold front settles farther to our south, drier air will gradually move in from the north.  This will lead to a rain-free day on Thursday with lower humidity.
