As Hurricane Florence begins to enter the Carolinas, metro Atlanta isn’t expected to see any rain from the storm until Sunday night, according to the projections by Channel 2 Action News.

There’s a 30 percent chance of rain developing late in the day Sunday, and storms should continue into Monday, Channel 2 meteorologist Brad Nitz said. Most of metro Atlanta should see only about one-half inch of rain.

Those planning to attend Music Midtown this weekend will likely need to plan more around 90-plus degree heat rather than rain, Channel 2 reported. Nitz said rain clouds could loom when Imagine Dragons and Kendrick Lamar take the stage in the 8 p.m. hour Sunday, but the day should be mostly dry.

The latest models have Florence stalling at the North Carolina-South Carolina coast Thursday before making landfall Saturday morning and slowly turning to the west, according to Channel 2.

By the time it could possibly reach Georgia, it will likely be a tropical depression or area of low pressure, but the latest projections show the storm hooking north toward Kentucky, Burns said.
