Next best chance of rain Monday

Another dry day Saturday with mostly sunny skies. Highs will be around 90. Much of Sunday will be dry, but late in the day we will bring back a slight chance for showers ahead of a cold front. The next best chance for rain and thunderstorms will be on Monday.

Cooler air will be moving in next week.

Tropical Depression struggling to hold together

Tropical Depression struggling to hold together

Tropical depression number 2 is struggling to hold together as it moves to the west. The depression still has 35mph winds and is moving toward the west at 18mph. It is encountering wind shear and dry air as it moves to the west. It will weaken as it gets closer to the Lesser Antilles. Right now, the storm is about 800 miles away from the islands.

It is not forecast to become a tropical storm, but if it does happen to get up to tropical storm strength, its name would be Bertha.

The fog will lift as the day goes by, but skies will remain mostly cloudy. We will see very few breaks in the clouds and that should keep high temperatures below the average (89 degrees). Highs today will be around 84.

Look for scattered showers and thunderstorms to pop up this afternoon with the day time heating. None should be severe.

The unsettled weather continues Tuesday as the clouds hang on. We will see another day with mostly cloudy skies and scattered showers and thunderstorms. Thanks to the clouds, temps will remain below the average.

Intermittent Heavy Showers This Weekend

More rain returns Sunday, but it won't be as widespread, and should mainly be in the second half of the day. High temperatures will be slightly warmer in the low to mid 80s.

Rain chances continue through next week with temperatures gradually warming into the upper 80s by the end of the week.

We broke the record Thursday morning with a low of 61 degrees. We warmed up to 86 during the afternoon.

This cool weather won't stick around long. We will warm back up to the mid to upper 80's on Friday with a few more clouds and more humidity. A system from the west will push in more showers for the weekend. We will have a 60% chance of showers and a few thunder showers on Saturday. Sunday's rain chance will be at 50%. The rain chance will hold into next week at 40% on Monday then 30% on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Cold front bringing in cooler and drier air

Remember how everyone was raving over the cool temperatures on July 4th morning for the AJC Peachtree Road Race? Our low that morning was 64 degrees. It will feel the same Wednesday. Temperatures Wednesday morning moved down to the mid 60's.

It will even be cooler Thursday morning, our low will be 63 degrees. The record low Thursday's date is 62°. The record low for July 17 is 62 degrees in 1965. Afternoon temperatures will be comfortable in the low to mid 80s with low humidity.

Slightly drier for the weekend

There will be some changes for the weekend. The front helping to trigger the rain will sink farther south into central Georgia, and slightly drier air will work into the area Saturdayy. Temperatures will go up, thanks to the additional sunshine. Highs will be in the low 90s.

Much of the same for Sunday with just a slight chance for a few thunderstorms along with hot temperatures in the low 90s.

Another cold front will be moving into the area by early next week, bringing a better chance for rain on Tuesday. We are also looking ahead to slightly cooler temps by the end of next week.
