ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - Periods of widespread rain soaked Metro Atlanta and much of north Georgia Saturday. A final round of scattered, to numerous, showers and storms sweeps in tonight.

Temperatures remain in the 60s and lower 70s, under dense cloud cover this evening. A lull in the rain continues across Metro Atlanta through 11 p.m., or so, ahead of the next round of wet weather.

A line, or clusters, of showers and storms sweep in from the northwest after 10 p.m. A couple storms could become strong with gustier winds and small hail. However, the risk of actual severe weather remains very low. Storms will produce heavy rain and frequent lightning in some areas as they move through. Don’t be surprised if thunder wakes you up between midnight and 6 a.m. across metro Atlanta.

The forecast dries out from northwest to southeast Sunday morning. The majority of the rain will be out of the metro by 8 a.m. Sunshine and a breeze rule the afternoon forecast. Only a spotty shower, or two, may bubble up after noon Sunday. Temperatures will be comfortable, despite the increasing sunshine. Plan on a stretch of pleasant and dry weather through much of the extended forecast.

Have a good evening,
