ATLANTA - Some severe thunderstorms moved through north Georgia Friday afternoon and evening, downing trees and power lines.
Flights were delayed leaving Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport as storms rolled through metro Atlanta.
A series of high school football games at Cool Ray Field in Gwinnett County were canceled due to heavy rain and flooded fields:
Storms are tapered off Friday night, but more rain is on the way this weekend.
Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Brian Monahan said that even wetter weather is expected beginning Saturday.
"As we head into Sunday, a cold front will slide to our south, bringing in what will more or less be a weak wedge. That will mean breezy and cooler weather for Sunday – in fact, below average temperatures," Monahan said.
Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Brad Nitz said highs will only be in the 70s in the mountains.
