The final Sunday of 2104 won’t be a great one to try out that new Christmas bicycle or fishing rod.

Rain is expected to move in overnight and continue through Monday, leading the National Weather Service to issue a flash flood warning for North Georgia.

Rainfall totals could reach 1 to 1.5 inches, leading to flooding of creeks, rivers and streams in low-lying areas. The rain also could collect on roadways, making driving hazardous.

Fog and rain are forecast for Sunday with a high in the upper 50s. The overnight low won’t fall far due to the cloud cover, reaching only around 50, with another half-inch or more of rain possible.

Showers should taper off by Monday morning, leaving a cloudy day and still unseasonably warm, again in the upper 50s. It will cool off to the lower 40s by Monday night.

Colder air will follow the rain, with temperatures dipping back into the 40s during the day and lower 30s overnight through to New Year’s Day.
