ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - Dry weather didn’t last all that long. Rain is returning to the forecast. First Alert - the weather looks pretty damp for a portion of our Monday.

Under increasing clouds, temperatures cool through the 60s, and back into the 50s, tonight. It’ll be mostly cloudy by the wee hours of Monday morning. The first few drops of rain are forecast to cross the state line around sunrise.

Rain becomes more widespread by mid-morning. The greatest chance of rain will occur between mid-morning and early afternoon across Metro Atlanta. Rain trends spottier and hit-or-miss by mid-afternoon. The sky remains mostly cloudy. With more clouds around, afternoon temperatures are forecast to remain in the 60s in many areas. Mountain communities may struggle to reach 60° through the day.

There is no risk of severe weather with this round of rain.

Wet weather returns later in the workweek...

The middle of the week features warmer weather. Temperatures approach 80° Tuesday afternoon in Atlanta and soar into the mid-80s Wednesday afternoon. A ‘cool front’ approaches from the northwest... and puts on the brakes. The front lingers in the area through the coming weekend. Showers, and a few thunderstorms, will accompany the front. Initially, the greater chance of rain appears to remain to our northwest. As the workweek ends and weekend begins, wetter weather may impact more of North Georgia. Temperatures are also forecast to trend much cooler starting Friday. Keep an eye on the forecast if you have plans.

Enjoy your week,
