Scattered showers are moving out of the metro Atlanta area, and a cold front is moving in. 

“That’s going to be it for (the rain) the next several days or so,” Channel 2 Action News Chief meteorologist Glenn Burns said.

The high temperature Thursday was 70, easily surpassing the average high (58) for this time of year in Atlanta.

Currently, it’s 60 degrees, Channel 2 reported. Atlanta’s record high for this day was 76 degrees, set in 1970.

More fog is expected Friday morning, but not as much as we saw Thursday, Burns said.

Umbrellas came out early Thursday in front of the Norfolk Southern building at 1200 Peachtree Street.

The rain is expected to end by Friday morning, with a low in the mid-50s. The high Friday is forecast to reach 65, which is 7 degrees above the average.

By mid-afternoon, Atlanta will still see more clouds than sun, but no rain, Burns said.

Highs in the 60s will continue through Tuesday.
