ATLANTA - Fall-like temperatures and occasional rain will dampen the weekend in metro Atlanta.
Severe Weather Team 2 meteorologist Karen Minton said spotty showers will continue over north Georgia on Friday and through the weekend.
"We'll be chilly with temperatures in the 60s today, some getting into the 70s. Our average is 88," Minton said.
Minton said the bulk of the rain would fall over central Georgia. Counties south of metro Atlanta are under a flash flood watch until Saturday morning.
"Spotty light showers will continue, heavier at times," Minton said. "The trend for cool weather will continue on Saturday and Sunday. Good chances of showers on Sunday in particular."
The rain caused several crashes on metro interstates Friday morning, slowing traffic in Cobb and DeKalb counties.
There is relief ahead, Minton said. Temperatures are expected to climb back into the mid-80s for Monday and Tuesday.
