Georgia gets much-needed rain from Humberto

Georgia is reaping the benefits of Tropical Depression Humberto, which helped to bring more than an inch and a half of rain to Atlanta's airport.

A meteorologist at the National Weather Service office in Peachtree City - Dan Darbe - says the 1.64 inches of rainfall recorded Thursday at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is more than the airport recorded on any single day during the entire month of August.

Despite the rainfall, he says Georgia remains 14.5 inches below normal in rainfall for the year.

The forecast calls for more rain as Humberto moves into northwest Georgia. A frontal boundary moving into the state is expected to bring lows in the 50s by Sunday morning across northern Georgia, with 60s across the south.
