ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - The first rounds of weekend storms blew through this morning, leaving a nice Saturday afternoon in its wake. But, don’t let your guard down. More storms are in the forecast. A few may be strong or severe.

Only spotty showers have managed to develop east and south of Metro Atlanta. The forecast remains mostly dry through midnight. But, a rogue downpour cannot be ruled out; especially east and south of the metro. Temperatures, gradually, cool back into the mid and upper 60s after sunset.

FIRST ALERT | We’re not done with rain and thunderstorms yet...

Tonight and Early Sunday Morning - Strong, to severe, thunderstorms will move out of Alabama and into North Georgia in the wee hours of Sunday morning. There is a Slight Risk of severe weather southwest of Atlanta and a Marginal Risk elsewhere. There is no risk of severe weather in the mountains tonight, nor Sunday morning.

Sunday Evening, Monday Morning - A third round of rain and thunderstorms develops tomorrow evening and will impact portions of North Georgia Sunday night and Monday morning. There is a Slight Risk of severe weather along and south of the I-20 corridor, with a Marginal Risk extending further north.

While the risk of severe weather is lower, more scattered downpours are forecast to develop Monday afternoon and Tuesday. The risk of heavy rain will linger into the start of the workweek, followed by a down-turn in the active weather by the middle of the week.

Have, at least, one way to be alerted to severe weather through Monday. The First Alert Weather App is a free and easy option.

Have a great rest of your weekend,
