ATLANTA - Metro Atlanta residents woke up to heavy downpours Saturday morning. The rain stopped by noon, but a Severe Weather Team 2 meteorologist says more is in store this weekend.

Meteorologist Brad Nitz says it'll be mostly cloudy through Saturday afternoon and evening. Another round of rain moves in overnight and early Sunday. Nitz said there will be heavy rain and thunderstorms around 4 a.m.

Risks of isolated severe storms in the southwest will scoot out pretty quickly Sunday, leaving metro Atlanta with just a few scattered showers into the afternoon, as a line of light rain with this front is predicted to arrive Sunday evening.

The five-day forecast shows clouds for the rest of the day, which will reach a high of about 58 degrees. The high will stay in the upper 50s Sunday, with showers and thunderstorms primarily in the morning. Monday will be cold and windy with a high in the upper 40s Monday and Tuesday.

Nitz said the average high this time of year is 66 degrees, but the metro area will be nowhere near it as morning lows will be near freezing Tuesday and Wednesday morning.
