More soggy news from the National Weather Service, which has issued another flash flood watch Monday afternoon to include Cobb County through Tuesday evening.
We’re expecting between 2-4 inches that started late Monday afternoon, and the rains aren’t expected to let up for the next day or so.
There’s a 100 percent chance of rain Monday night, and a 90 percent chance through most of the day Tuesday. The chance of rain is expected to taper off to a 60 percent chance Tuesday night, and up to 70 percent again on Wednesday night and into Thursday morning.
The watch area covers most of north Georgia, which was drenched by rain last week that led to flooding in some parts, including a few streets in East Cobb, as well as East Cobb Park, Sandy Plains Park and Noonday Creek Park. A part of Keheley Road remains closed north of Shallowford Road.
Tuesday’s high temperature is expected to be in the mid 50s, with lows around the same. The highs for Wednesday is forecast for the mid 60s, and likewise for Thursday.
Sunny weather is expected by Friday, but it’s going to get colder, only into the high 40s.
