Despite a rainy Saturday in the city, skies will clear and the sunshine will return through midweek in Atlanta.

Although temperatures will be in the mid-50s, occasional rain showers will dampen the city on Saturday. Clouds will accompany the rain making for low ceilings, which could cause delays at the Atlanta International Airport.

However, the sun will make a return on Sunday. Even with the sun the city will feel colder as temperatures drop into the 40s and a northwestern breeze blows through. Wind gusts up to 20 mph are possible in some places.

Temperatures will jump back up to the mid-50s to begin the week, as mostly sunny skies help to make the air feel much warmer than the weekend.

Tuesday through Thursday will remain in the mid- to upper 50s and the sun will remain in the sky.

The first chance for rain and cloudy skies will come on Friday.
