GAINESVILLE, Ga. -- The soggy Mother's Day weather may have been bad news to moms across the state, but it was good news for north Georgia's Lake Lanier.

The wet weather helped push the lake's level to almost 1,065 feet - just six feet below full pool level.

More rain and a possibly a thunderstorm or two are on the way. The wet front could bring heavy rain and shows that could linger into Wednesday night.
