    Drier Weather Follows Severe Storms in Atlanta

    The weekend will end on a drier note in Atlanta in the wake of the damaging thunderstorms that rolled through Saturday morning.

    Downed trees were left in the wake of the violent thunderstorms with the most immediate reports coming from communities north of the city.

    After thunderstorm winds downed trees onto a mobile home in Acworth, Ga., WSB-TV reports that a two-year-old was rushed to the hospital and firefighters worked to free a 14-year-old girl who had become trapped.

    Following the passage of the severe weather, drier air will work into the Atlanta area for the second half of the weekend.


    Sunday's weather will feature abundant sunshine, low humidity and mild highs in the upper 50s.

    The return of some rain to Atlanta will come Monday afternoon and night, but it will take until Wednesday for the city to notice the brief arrival of colder air.

    After rising to the 60-degree mark on Tuesday, temperatures will be held to near 45 degrees on Wednesday.

    A high in the lower 50s is more common in Atlanta this time of year.
