ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - Sprinkles, patchy drizzle are possible this evening ahead of steadier rain early Friday morning. Keep an eye on the First Alert Weather App, especially if you have Black Friday shopping plans.

First Alerts - widespread wet weather through the first half of Friday, another round of rain Saturday night and Sunday morning.... followed by a risk of thunderstorms Wednesday.

Under clouds, temperatures only slowly settle back through the 50s across Metro Atlanta overnight. A few spots will bottom-out in the 40s tonight; mainly outside of Atlanta proper and up in the mountains of far North Georgia. Drizzle is possible after 8 p.m., but steadier rain arrives after midnight.

By 7 a.m. steady light, to moderate, rain will be falling across much of North Georgia. Periods of rain are forecast to continue through the morning and into early afternoon. There will be a lull in the wet weather weather later Friday afternoon through Saturday afternoon. It’ll still look gloomy, and a spotty rain shower cannot be ruled out, but most won’t have any rain to deal with during that time period.

Widespread wet weather returns Saturday evening through Sunday morning ahead of a cold front. Widespread rain, and a few thunderstorms, are expected to sweep into North Georgia later Saturday evening. The risk of rain and thunder lingers past sunrise Sunday morning. Rain moves east before noon and a dry Sunday afternoon is in the forecast.

After a couple days of drier, milder weather... thunderstorms return to our area Wednesday ahead of another cold front. A couple strong, to severe, storms cannot be ruled out. Continue to keep a casual eye on next week’s forecast as the details become clearer.

Have a happy Thanksgiving,
