The first official weekend of autumn has been a gloomy one so far in North Georgia, and don't look for the sun to show up anytime soon.

The National Weather Service forecast calls for showers and periods of drizzle to continue into the evening, and it won't clear up Sunday, either. In fact, the chance of showers runs through next week.

The chance of rain is 60 percent today, dropping to 30 percent by Sunday night, but more showers are headed our way Monday and Tuesday. With the cloud cover, temperatures will remain mild, upper 60s and lower 70s during the day and lower 60s at night.

Saturday's schedule is chock full of local outdoor events including the Lake Lanier Shore Sweep, Taste of Gainesville at Clarks Bridge Park and Lula Fall Festival.

The cloud cover also may make it harder for local residents to see Sunday night's "blood moon" lunar eclipse.
