Sally has done her worst on Atlanta improvement begins

Creeks and rivers will continue to rise from run-off even as rain leaves

There is good model consensus that the worst of the rain will be ending after 10 this morning.

Only scattered to isolated light showers expected the rest of the day. The gusty wind in some areas will also die down after 11am or so.

Beware standing water in low-lying areas and the usual flood-prone spots. Never drive where water covers the roads, turn around don’t drown. Flood Warnings are in effect for many area creeks and streams.

1-6 inches of rain has fallen on average across much of the metro Atalanta area while the heavier amounts in the 8-10 inch range fell in Central Georgia.

As expected the lighter amounts 1-2″ fell in the NW suburbs and the heaviest rain in the South suburbs 5-6″:

ESTIMATED ADDITIONAL RAIN AMOUNTS REST OF TODAY:

The tropics remain active with the system in the Gulf possibly moving North toward the Gulf beyond the weekend but more likely Mexico or South tip of Texas, and Teddy may eventually threaten the NE U.S. or SE Canada. Watch this space.

Meanwhile we still get cooler than normal temperatures and much less humid conditions for the weekend into next week.
