The National Weather Service continues the FLOOD WATCH for the entire Atlanta Metro area and other parts of Georgia in dark green below until 7am Monday:

Like yesterday there will be periods when it is not raining.

I do not think that the rain will be heavy enough nor fall intensely enough (in most cases anyway) for any significant flooding.

However, during heavier downpours beware of ponding on roads and flooding of low spots. Also, keep an eye on the usual flood-prone creeks and streams that are always first to reach or exceed bank-full just in case.
