Play video Weather across the Southeast is detailed in the above AccuWeather.com video.

After a soggy end to the weekend, dry weather and cooler temperatures are on the way for the rest of the workweek.

A cold front that slowly crossed the country this weekend left lingering showers in the Atlanta area on Monday morning.

However in the wake of the front, cool temperatures moved into the area.

With the sunshine becoming a standard across northern Georgia for the week, afternoon high temperatures will be around 70 for the early part of the week.

This means that it will be good fall-like weather for the Braves game if the series returns to Atlanta for Game 5 on Wednesday.

By Thursday, temperatures will be on the rise, making it near 80 degrees for the coming weekend with partly to mostly sunny skies continuing.
