According to the latest information today, the eye of Irma will not come to Atlanta as first thought. Instead, the eye will move into Alabama. Atlanta will still get dangerous weather, but the changes affect timing, so the metro area will feel the worst of this storm system this afternoon and tonight.

From noon until 4 pm –  the Atlanta area will get the heaviest rain and strongest winds (up to 70 mph).

After 4 pm –  the heavy rain will continue for several hours because the system is slowing down. Rain total 2-6 inches.

Tuesday morning – the rain will taper off .
