A break of dry weather will continue around Atlanta into Friday, but will be followed by heavy rain in time for the weekend.

A new storm set to develop over the Lower Mississippi Valley Friday will begin to throw clouds across the region before the end of the week.

Rain is in the offing Friday night into Saturday. Some of that rain can be heavy enough to cause flooding in poor drainage areas. Low ceilings and the rain could cause delays at Atlanta International Airport.

In the wake of the storm Sunday into next week, most days will bring temperatures near or above average for the middle of December.

Sunday will feel colder reaching only 47 degrees, as cloudy skies inhibit the sun from shining through.

Beginning Monday temperatures will begin to rise everyday through midweek and sunny skies will return to the city.

The next chance for significant cloud cover and some showers will be Friday.
