Welcome rain but not a drought buster

HRRR model predictive radar shown above 4pm give or take a couple hours.

There will be dry areas and dry hours in-between showers today not constant rain.

Scattered showers today will be on the increase during the afternoon evolving into fairly widespread rain by evening accompanied by temperatures a little cooler than normal for this time of year (normal is a high of 73 and low of 54) and little or no sun today, best chance for some North suburbs or mountains. Highs today 67-74 lows tonight around 62.

The heaviest rain amounts are expected to be South of I-20 especially in Central Georgia.

The greatest number of dry hours will be in the mountains and North suburbs with the fewest dry hours in the South suburbs.

The rain will not bust the drought but it will at least put a small dent in it, especially in middle Georgia. But we’ll all take what we can get.

IF the models are right we may be able to bust the drought or put a big dent in it over the course of the next month.

This does look to be just the start of a more active weather pattern the next 2-4 weeks, with multiple frontal passages and the jet stream developing into a wavy pattern, providing ups and downs in temperatures from warmer than normal to colder than normal and back again the rest of this month and into the start of November:
