A deluge of near-Biblical proportions struck the Atlanta area over the weekend, forcing the East Lake Country Club, site of this week's Tour Championship, to close today.
While East Lake area escaped the worst of the heavy rain - they received only about 5 inches - forecasters are calling for continued locally heavy downpours in and around metropolitan Atlanta with up to an additional 5 inches possible today alone. As much as 24 inches of rain fell on counties west of the city since Sept. 18, leading to flooding and two deaths.
East Lake, about five miles east of downtown Atlanta, escaped most of the heavy rain. More storms may come each during the upcoming week, according to local forecasters. ThroughSunday, Weather.com forecasters are calling for between a 30-60% of continuing shower and storm activity, giving residents and PGA Tour golfers alike little relief.
