Showers End, Warmer for the Weekend in Atlanta

It's been a gloomy Tuesday across northern and central Georgia with a lot of clouds and showers hanging around.

The heaviest rain has been focused south of Atlanta across central and southern Georgia, which is great news for this drought-ravaged part of the state. While much more rain is needed in this area, every little bit helps.

The rain was caused by a cold front crossing the area, although the air behind the front is not all that cold. High temperatures will still be in the 60s over the next few days.

A dome of warm air developing over the Plains states will build eastward and give temperatures a boost just in time for the upcoming weekend.

Temperatures will make a run at 70 degrees both Saturday and Sunday, which is about 10 degrees above average for this time of year.
