    Atlanta Faces Soaking Rain, Flood Threat

    Rounds of drenching rain will not only soak Atlanta through Monday, but may also trigger flash flooding.

    The storm system tracking northeastward from the Gulf of Mexico is responsible for the wet start to the week.

    It is possible that residents will notice a lull in the rain early Monday morning after a rainy first half to Sunday night. Even if that occurs, a band of drenching rain and thunderstorms will still sweep through on Monday and push rainfall total to or past 2 inches.

    That amount of rain has heightened concerns for flash flooding.

    Some of Monday's thunderstorms may also turn severe with damaging winds.

    Fresh cool air will usher in for Tuesday and Wednesday, along with the chance for a shower Tuesday night.

    The door will then open for temperatures to rebound later in the week.
