Sunday will bring lows in the 40s and highs in the 70s under plenty of sunshine, making for an 11Alive Day!

Our drier conditions won't last long with a slight chance for rain back in the forecast on Monday and a few isolated showers and storms possible Tuesday through Thursday as lows sit in the 50s to 60s and highs in the 70s to 80s.

Expect half an inch to two and a half inches of rainfall to occur across the region this next week from our rain chances with the higher totals being in far northwest Georgia.
