ATLANTA -

The rain has left the area, but it was replaced Saturday night and early Sunday morning with dense fog. That fog will burn off allowing the sun to shine through and a chance to dry out a bit before the next wave of showers move into the state.

Around 1 to 2 inches of rain fell in portions of north Georgia and metro Atlanta since Wednesday. Some areas towards central part of the state got up to 3 inches as the rain continued to fall Saturday throughout central Georgia.

Big Creek in north Fulton and Forsyth counties as well as Line Creek near Senoia were under a Flood Warning on Saturday, but that was canceled before midnight. Several waterways in central and southern Georgia remained under a Flood Warning into Sunday as runoff continued to swell their banks.

The Flood Watch issued for portions of Georgia were canceled before midnight Saturday.  (CLICK HERE FOR A LIST OF COUNTIES UNDER OTHER WATCH AND WARNINGS).

The sun will come out Sunday with a chance for streams, creeks and rivers to drain down to below stage before another round of showers move through the state starting on Monday. This next round could dump another 1 to 2 inches of rain in north Georgia and metro Atlanta, but again, the heaviest rain fall will be in the center part of the state which could see 3 to 4 more inches on top the of the 3 inches that fell this past week.
