After heat and humidity stifled Atlanta this week, a fall-like chill will settle into the area this weekend.
A messy weather pattern is ahead for late this week, AccuWeather Meteorologist Alyson Hoegg said, as showers and thunderstorms will move into the area Friday night.
While the rain will not be widespread, some high school football games could be impacted, according to Hoegg. The Braves home game against the Mets could also see a delay.

As the weekend begins, temperatures will drop to the upper 70s on Saturday, which is more in line with late September than the middle of the month, she said.
The weather Saturday will feel more comfortable than Friday, especially for those attending Georgia Tech's home game against Tulane. However, a shower or thunderstorm is still possible for the area.
Sunday will be even cooler with temperatures in the low 70s.
"That's more like the middle of October," Hoegg said.
By early next week, warmer air will seep back into the city, with normal temperatures expected by the middle of the week.
