Clear skies Easter Sunday

The heavy rain that marred the first half of the weekend is over. Here are the top things to know for Sunday.

Cloudy, then clear on Easter: "Easter Sunday starts with clouds but then clearing skies through the afternoon," Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Brad Nitz said. The day will be mostly sunny and warm with a high of 70 degrees, he said.

Warmer temps on the way: Much warmer weather returns next week with highs in the mid-70s beginning Monday. "Our next chance of rain comes Tuesday, but we'll stay warm all week," Nitz said. Check today's full weather report and track changes.

Big beer and music festival coming to downtown: The 10th annual Sweetwater 420 Fest continues to take over Centennial Olympic Park, with dozens of bands playing on several stages throughout the park. The fun gets started again at 11:30 a.m. Sunday.

Easter Sunrise on Stone Mountain: A metro Atlanta tradition that began in 1944 continued.

Remembering the "Captain": A public celebration of the life of WSB's Captain Herb Emory was held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at Johnson Ferry Baptist Church on Johnson Ferry Road in east Cobb County.

Good news on the road construction front: Only one daytime interstate lane closure was planned this weekend, according to the Georgia Department of Transportation. The left lane of I-285 northbound in DeKalb County from I-20 to Ga. 400 was set to be closed from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

"With only that one closure, everyone should have an easier time getting to their destinations," said GDOT engineer Shun Pringle.

There are, however, overnight closures planned for I-20 westbound from Wesley Chapel Road to Candler Road.
