We've been tracking strong storms moving through the area today. Some of those producing damaging wind and small hail. Most of the heaviest storms have pushed east of Atlanta this afternoon. The highest chance for storms will be east of Atlanta through early evening. We still have a chance of some isolated storms in the metro area tonight. They won't be as strong as the ones we had earlier. We continue with a chance of afternoon showers each and every day this week.
The 4th of July outlook calls for a very humid start, and partly sunny skies. There is a slight chance for thunderstorms during the afternoon, and a high of 87 degrees.
