First Dry Weekend Since June 30th!

First Dry Weekend Since June 30th!

This is the first weekend since June 30th that both weekend days have received 0.0" of rain at the official Atlanta rain gauge!  I looked back at the records and confirmed that we've had some pretty soggy weekends this summer.  We came close to no rain last weekend with only a "Trace" recorded at Hartsfield-Jackson.  But before that, our weekend rain totals have been impressive.

Here's a look at some of the numbers.  June 29-30th was the last weekend with no rain in Atlanta.

7/6-1.12"         7/7-.14"

7/13-.01"       7/14-.03"

7/20-1.45"     7/21-.59"

7/27-T           7/28-0.0"

8/3-0.0"          8/4-0.0"

Sunday Atlanta Weather Update

We started off with a few more clouds around this morning with mild air in the low 70s.  We will see some sun breaking through those clouds at times today.  The rain chance is low.  Just a 20% chance of an afternoon isolated shower developing.  High temps will be near 90.

Pretty much the same outlook for Monday.  Partly cloudy and hot with a high of 90.  Only a 20% chance of an isolated shower.  The rain chances go up to 30% for Tuesday through Thursday.  Even better chances for a few showers on Friday and Saturday.

High temps will be around 89-90 degrees each day this week.

Sunday Atlanta Weather Outlook

We hit 88 degrees for a high temperature Saturday.  There were only a couple of isolated showers in northwest Georgia Saturday afternoon.  Most areas stayed dry.

We will have a 20% chance of an afternoon or early evening shower both Sunday and Monday with highs in the low 90s.  That rain chance goes up to 30% for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  A little better chance for some showers on Friday and Saturday with the rain chance going up to 40%.  Temps will hold near 90 for highs for the rest of the 7 Day Forecast.

Dorian Downgraded Again

After coming back to life this morning, Dorian is downgraded again.  The latest update from the National Hurricane Center classifies Dorian as a "post tropical cyclone."  It has lost it's tropical characteristics and is a remnant low pressure system that will move toward the north and east as it continues to weaken.

The storm was briefly upgraded back to a tropical depression this morning.  That regeneration was brief before the downgrade again Saturday afternoon.

It is only causing rain off the eastern coast of Florida now.  A few showers will affect the Florida coastline.  Folks along the east coast of Florida will also experience some rough surf.  Dorian is forecast to move to the north and east and not have a direct impact on land.  The post tropical system won't have any effect on us here in Georgia.  

Here is the latest advisory from NHC:

Saturday Atlanta Weather Update

We'll have another dry day in the metro Atlanta area today.  There is just a slight chance of a shower mainly in north and northwest Georgia later this afternoon.  The air is just a little drier today.  The humidity will still be a little muggy out there, but not too oppressive.  Our high temp will get up to 90.

We will introduce a 20% chance of a shower back into the forecast for Sunday and Monday.  Most areas will stay dry, just don't be surprised if a brief shower pops up as the heat and humidity build again.  Rain chances go up to 30% on Tuesday and Wednesday, then 40% Thursday and Friday.

The remnants of Dorian regenerated to a tropical depression this morning off the east coast of Florida.  It is forecast to move north and east staying in the Atlantic.  It won't have any effect on us.

Weekend Atlanta Forecast

ATLANTA, Ga. -- We are drying out due to northwesterly winds this evening.  This is great news after very heavy rain brought flash flooding to the mountains of North Georgia this week.

Saturday: Party Cloudy high near 90 degrees

Sunday: Partly Cloudy high 92 Degrees

Atlanta Weather | Friday Forecast

Mostly sunny skies today, but as some storms build into south Georgia, more cloud cover will creep into north Georgia as a result. Afternoon high temperatures in the upper 80s to low 90s.

Mostly clear skies tonight with areas of patchy fog possible after 2am. Overnight low temperatures will be in upper 60s to low 70s.

Partly cloudy for Saturday with afternoon high temperatures around 90 degrees. Rain chances get a bit higher as we approach early next week, and as a result, high temperatures fall back a few degrees.
