FRIDAY: Rain/Snow Mix: High: Upper 30s. Highs in the mid 70s. However, it is not out of the question that one or two storms may reach severe limits with locally damaging winds or an isolated tornado. With the heavy rain, areas that are already saturated could experience some localized flash flooding. And more rain will move through before the month ends.

TODAY: Showers likely with a chance of thunder later in the day. Severe T-Storm warnings were issued with this band of rain earlier this morning in North Texas. It is something we will continue to watch through the evening.

TONIGHT: A cold front will push through overnight and will spark some strong thunderstorms. Rain is expected to persist most of Sunday during the day as a fast-moving low pressure system works through the region, according to the National Weather Service.

Freezing rain could make for a slick morning commute
Temperatures are expected to reach the mid to high 70s through Wednesday . Chance of precipitation is 20 percent. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 23.

Expect partly-sunny skies with a high of 55 and a low of 41 on Wednesday, which will see a 30 percent chance of nighttime rain. It will be windy at times with gusts around 25 miles per hour.

Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Katie Walls said Atlanta set a record high of 79 degrees Saturday, breaking the record of 78 degrees set past year. After it is all said and done, rain totals could be around an inch in many locations. Rain showers are expected Thursday with a high similar to Wednesday. As we look ahead to the afternoon we'll continue to deal with cloudy skies and lingering light to moderate showers.
