Nice weather expected for Memorial Day holiday

ATLANTA (AP) - Sunny, dry weather is expected through Memorial Day.

The high for Memorial Day will reach 85 degrees, Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Brad Nitz tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The nice weather comes after four consecutive weekends with rain. Atlanta's official rainfall totals the past four weekends, beginning with the last weekend in April, were 1.73 inches, 4.24 inches, .03 inches and .54 inches.

Sunny skies and highs in the low 80s are expected along the Georgia coast as well the beaches of the Florida panhandle.
