Atlanta: Warm and unsettled weather to span the weekend

Warm and unsettled conditions are in store for the Atlanta region this weekend.

Those heading outdoors will want to keep a rain jacket or umbrella handy as showers and thunderstorms will prevail this weekend.

"While both days will not be a washout, there will be the threat for a downpour at times from passing thunderstorms," AccuWeather Meteorologist Jordan Root said.

Warm weather will also continue through Monday as temperatures climb into the low to middle 80s F. A high temperature of 76 is more typical for this time of year in the city.

"A cold front will stall over the region early next week, bringing clouds and cooler air to the region," Root said.

Root added that this system will keep the threat for showers and thunderstorm in the area.

High temperatures are expected to fall back into the middle 70s.
