ATLANTA — Enjoy the sunshine now — rain and even snow could be headed for parts of Georgia this weekend.

The National Weather Service calls for rain with a chance of snow in Atlanta and Athens Friday and Saturday. It follows a weekend of record rainfall in parts of Georgia.

Sunday's heavy rain caused minor flooding and flight delays, but tornado watches and warnings expired without any reports of tornadoes.

The flooding forced the closing of U.S. 78 near Hewatt Road in Gwinnett County and in Peachtree City, firefighters had to use boats to evacuate a handful of residents from a condo complex.

The rain delayed flights at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, and wind gusts as high as 44 miles per hour were recorded near Atlanta.
