It's been a gloomy Tuesday across northern and central Georgia with a lot of clouds and showers hanging around.
The heaviest rain has been focused south of Atlanta across central and southern Georgia, which is great news for this drought-ravaged part of the state. While much more rain is needed in this area, every little bit helps.

Springlike warmth will pour from the Plains to the East over the next few days before another winter storm unfolds at midweek.
