The weather in metro Atlanta has been nice the last few days, but that could come to an end Sunday as clouds and light showers return.
While highs should reach the mid-60s, a cold wedge is expected to make its way through North Georgia, dropping temperatures slightly and bringing a light drizzle, Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Eboni Deon said.
“Sunday will start cloudy and mainly dry,” she said. “Late in the day, rain chances increase from the south and west as a front approaches ... Most of the rain we see will be on the lighter side but there is more headed our direction.”
The rain is expected to linger into the start of the work week and could be heavy at times, she said. With many working from home, however, traffic into the city on Monday morning shouldn’t be too bad.
The rain is expected to stick around through Wednesday, although it should lighten up as temperatures warm back into the mid-70s, Deon said.
Thursday and Friday should be nice, but the rain is expected to return just in time for next weekend.
Georgia Department of Transportation crews are expected to be out in full force this week repairing potholes on I-75, so expect lane closures if you’re heading south into Atlanta.
