Rain, wind and cooler temps ahead for today

After a dry first half of the week, rain will make a wet second half of the week and into the weekend.

Rain is moving through metro Atlanta Thursday morning and is making roads very wet for drivers.

95.5 WSB Meteorologist Christina Edwards predicts that the widespread rain will be heavy at times as it moves through the area. A Wind Advisory has been issued through 6 p.m. Thursday with wind gusts of up to 45 mph.

We’re tracking the rain throughout the day, on 95.5 WSB.

Here’s what to know:

  • Pockets of downpours through the afternoon
  • Gusty winds throughout the day
  • Cooler temperatures blows in behind the system

WSB Veteran Meteorologist Kirk Mellish has been tracking the impending change in our weather as well: “A big change is coming as we go from a high pressure ridge to the formation of a deep closed upper-level cut-off low aloft into the weekend.”

He adds, “I’ve shown and explained the relationship between the jet stream pattern flow and what the weather does here at the surface thanks to things going on 10,000-60,000 feet up dozens of times over the years.” Read his FULL BLOG here.
