ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - Expect plenty of clouds, but just a few showers during the day on Thursday. It will be another relatively cool day with the temperature in the 70s to low 80s. We are at the start of an unsettled weather pattern that will last into next week.

FIRST ALERT | Rain may become more widespread Friday

A disturbance moving through north Georgia on Friday has a better chance of bringing showers. Even though it will not be an all-day washout, there is a decent chance for multiple rounds of rain between dawn and midnight. There may be some heavier rain in any thunderstorms that develop on Friday, and it will stay quite cool for mid-August with highs only in the mid 70s to near 80.

It will get a bit warmer this weekend with highs in the mid 80s, but the shower/storm threat persists with the best chance of rain in the afternoon and early-evening.

Looking ahead to next week, there’s not a lot of change in the forecast - cooler than normal with showers possible each day through the midweek.
