Flirting with Record High Temperatures | News
We were just 2 degrees away from a record high temperature on Sunday. Our high was 72 degrees. The record for today's date is 74 set in 1998. We have a chance to flirt with another record high on Monday. The record for Monday's date is also 74 degrees that was set in 1982. We are forecasting a high of 73 for Monday. That would be just 1 degree away from the record. Our average high for this time of year is 58 degrees. That means we will be 15 degrees above average Monday.
It will be warm again on Tuesday. The record for Tuesday date is a little warmer. It's 76 set in 1998. Our high will be 71 on Tuesday. That will be about 5 degrees shy of the record.
The changes begin on Tuesday with more clouds moving in ahead of the next system that will give us a chance of some rain. The rain will move in to northwest Georgia late Tuesday night. The main area of rain will move through metro Atlanta early on Wednesday. This is going to be another one of those systems that falls apart as it moves in. The rain chances aren't that great and the rain totals won't be that impressive either.
After the moisture moves out, the front will stall out in central Georgia. That will set up an east wind over north Georgia and the "wedge" effect. We will continue with mostly cloudy skies Thursday and Friday with cooler temps back to the upper 50s.
