ATLANTA — The rain has moved in taking away our sunshine and above average temperatures.
Today: Cooler with rain, mainly north. Moderate at times. High: 57
Tonight: Cloudy and mild with scattered showers. Low: 50
Saturday: Mostly cloudy and much warmer with isolated showers. High: 74
Sunday: Mostly cloudy and warm with only a stray shower or two. High: 76
After hitting the 70s for three days in a row, today's forecast brings us back to reality. It's still February. It will be cloudy and cooler with rain, especially north of I-20.
The rain will be light to moderate, and off and on through the day. The highest concentration will be north of I-20, where it will be a soaking rain. South of the I-20 region, scattered lighter showers will be possible throughout the day, but there will be lulls in the precipitation.
The "wedge" and northeast winds will keep temperatures in the 50s through the day.
For the weekend, the wedge erodes away and a warmer pattern sets up again. A chance of rain will stick around for the weekend, but the chances will be much lower. We have a 30% chance Saturday, and only 20% chance on Sunday. The shower chance Saturday is mostly in the morning. You'll have an overall pretty dry weekend to enjoy the warmer weather. Both afternoon's high temps will be in the mid 70s!
Rain chances will continue into the beginning of next week. As a cold front slides in from the northwest, rain becomes likely on Monday with temps in the 60s. We'll keep a 30% chance of showers in the forecast Tuesday and Wednesday.
