The left or backside of Florence will exert some influence on ATLANTA WEATHER today through Monday but nothing out of the ordinary. Greater negative impacts will be closer to the South Carolina/North Carolina border.

For Atlanta just a few scattered showers and thunderstorms and a gusty breeze at times (12-20 mph for Atlanta).

The N/NE winds gusting to 28 mph will be noticeable for the UGA Bulldogs in Athens today and a shower spun off from Florence is possible late afternoon and tonight.
