One rainy night, then sunshine

A frontal system moving through tonight will bring us our one good chance for some rain this week, to be followed by several surges of cold air but a long stretch of sunshine.

Rain should move in from the west beginning late this afternoon, and scattered showers will be with us most of the night.  Amounts should not be too heavy with this system, and by early morning Tuesday we should already begin to clear out.

Another cold front will arrive early Wednesday, this one with a good push of Canadian air behind it.  This will not be the intense cold we saw last week, but cold enough to produce a dusting of snow over northern portions of Georgia, possibly as far south as Atlanta.

For us, the front should pass through dry, as will the next few reinforcements of Canadian air dropping in later in the week.  Sunshine will prevail despite the subnormal temperatures, with no rain systems expected through next weekend.
