There may be one last blast of wet weather before the end of 2013 in the Atlanta area.

Temperatures will rise into the mid-50s by the weekend before turning lower for Monday and Tuesday.

Rain, heavy at times, and thunderstorms are expected to affect the region Saturday night into early Sunday morning ahead of an arctic front.

New Year's Eve will be chilly for events such as the Peach Drop 2014 with the 800-pound peach making its descent into the new year and the Chick-fil-A Bowl at the Georgia Dome.
