    By: Severe Weather Team 2


    ATLANTA - A cool evening is in store for your Friday -- a big switch from the 80 degrees the metro saw just 24 hours ago. 

    The high for Friday was 67 but the area reached that official high shortly after midnight. As a cold front moved in Friday morning, temperatures continued to drop and will continue to do so throughout the evening.

    "You'll want a jacket as you head out this evening," said Severe Weather Team 2's Meteorologist Brad Nitz

    Cooler air is moving in and you will see a big difference when you wake up Saturday morning. 

    "We're talking about temperatures in the low to mid-30s to start the day," Nitz said. 

    The timing on when and where we could see rain this weekend, on Channel 2 Action News throughout the evening. 

    Nitz said the temperature will only warm to the mid-50s throughout the day Saturday. 

    Saturday will be dry, but that is expected to change on Sunday. 

    Light rain and drizzle will increase throughout the day.

    "I expect it to be very light, but the coverage increases as we head throughout the afternoon," Nitz said. 

    The rain chances will increase as we head into next week.
