    ATLANTA - Some severe thunderstorms moved through north Georgia Friday afternoon and evening, downing trees and power lines.

    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.
