Tracking more showers moving from the south

ATLANTA — Better rain chances south of Atlanta early Tuesday, then more rain heads toward the metro area later in the day.  

Quick Forecast:

Tuesday: Cloudy skies. Rain returns late afternoon. Cooler. High near 51.
Wednesday: Chance for early morning showers. Clearing. High near 60.

We will continue to see scattered showers especially on the south side of the Atlanta metro area early Tuesday.  Temps will be much cooler than we were over the weekend!

Those showers on the south side will slowly move northward late afternoon mainly into the evening hours.  Much of far north Georgia will stay dry.  Once that rain makes it up to Atlanta, it will begin to move south again away from our area. 

The rain will exit the area early Wednesday and the sunshine will return by Wednesday afternoon.  Temperatures will remain cool Wednesday even with the sunshine returning.  Highs will be near 60 degrees.  

Thursday and Friday look dry and mild with temperatures warming up in to the low to mid 60s.  A weak system moves in to give us low rain chances on Saturday.
