After record-breaking warm weather Friday, things will begin to feel more like February again this weekend in metro Atlanta.

Cooler temperatures and rain are expected, as well as some noticeable wind, Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Brian Monahan said.

“We’ll be shifting things to where they should be this time of year,” Monahan said.

Friday, Atlanta reached 78 degrees, breaking the record of 77 set in 1982, according to Channel 2. The record was set just after 4 p.m.

Showing the quick shift, temperatures could drop to 33 on Saturday night. But the 40 percent chance of rain Saturday morning should give way to clear skies later in the day and evening, Monahan said.

The high is expected to be at 61 on Sunday, with virtually no chance of rain.
