ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - Sunshine, warm temperatures and gusty winds ruled the Saturday afternoon forecast. Wind gusts peaked between 35 MPH and 45 MPH in many communities.

A Wind Advisory remains in effect until 11 p.m. But, a gradual drop-off in wind speeds begins after sunset. While calmer than during a day, the night will still be a breezy one.

Temperatures cool through the 60s, and back into the 50s, after sunset. You may want a light jacket if you have evening plans. It’ll feel even cooler with the persistent breeze in the forecast.

Sunday begins on the chilly side. Temperatures bottom-out in the mid and upper 40s across Metro Atlanta before 9 a.m. A few of the typically-cooler communities could dip into the lower 40s. A light breeze will make it feel even chillier. Sunshine sends temperatures into the low and mid-60s by lunch time. It remain cooler for longer up in the mountains of far North Georgia. Temperatures are forecast to peak in the upper 60s and lower 70s across most of the metro Sunday afternoon. Humidity remains on the low side. The breeze will be lighter.

Clouds quickly increases as humidity climbs Sunday evening. The next chance of rain arrives Sunday night, into Monday. Wet weather is most likely across the southwestern half of North Georgia between 3 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday. Keep a casual eye on the forecast if you have outdoor plans. Drier weather returns Tuesday, but it won’t last all that long. An unsettled period of weather is expected to kick-off late in the workweek.

Have a great rest of your weekend,
