Freezing temps are gone, but rain is headed back to Atlanta

Showers are expected to return Wednesday, when there is a 30 percent chance of rain. 

“As we head through tonight, northeast winds and low clouds will develop,” Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Brian Monahan said. Rain should hit the metro area by noon. 

Rain chances increase to 40 and 80 percent on Thursday and Friday, respectively, he said. 

The weekend is expected to be dry but cold again, with temperatures in the 20s and 30s.
