Rain, rain goes away

About an inch of rain soaked the metro Atlanta area on Saturday. But the whole weekend won't be a wash.

The showers should clear out, leaving cloudy skies behind, according to meteorologist Vaughn Smith with the National Weather Service.

Gusty winds and showers made for a messy Saturday. But unlike last weekend's bitter cold, the high Sunday should reach the middle to upper 50's, Vaughn said. Just a week ago, it didn't get warm enough to melt the ice on the roads or the dusting of snow on the grass and the wind made it even more frigid.

A low-pressure system that developed along the Texas-Mexico border pushed the rains into Georgia. But the beginning of the week will be dry.

Monday -- the King Holiday -- should be sunny, according to the National Weather Service. The high Monday will be around 60 and then Monday night temperature readings should drop to 33 degrees.

Tuesday is also expected to be sunny, with a high in the low-60's.
