ATLANTA — Wednesday: Mostly cloudy. 20% chance for an isolated shower. High: 71°.
Thursday: Scattered showers as cold front moves through. High: 67°.
Friday: Showers move south and east. High of 63°.
Clouds have overtaken the area, but we are not expecting much rain. There is a slight chance (20%) for a sprinkle or two. Most of us will stay dry. Despite the cloud cover today, temps will remain very warm.
Under mostly cloudy skies, highs will reach the low 70s. It will be well above the average for this time of year, but not high enough to reach the daily record of 79 degrees.
Rain coverage will increase by Thursday as the cold front gets closer, but the line of showers and storms will not be nearly as strong by the time it arrives in North GA.
The front will produce a threat for severe weather west of us Wednesday across Louisiana and Mississippi. While a few storms may turn severe Thursday in south Georgia, there is no risk for severe weather in our area.
A few stray storms may still bring heavy rain and lightning for us.
Scattered showers and isolated storms are expected Thursday, but the line of showers will be breaking apart as it moves southeast. Rain will be most widespread in the morning hours and will likely have an impact on your commute.
Rain shifts southeast during the day. By 5 PM, showers and storms will be mainly south and east of the Atlanta metro.
A low rain chance lingers into the first half of the day Friday, but we'll dry out late afternoon.
Colder air moves in behind the cold front for the upcoming weekend. Highs on Saturday only warm to the upper 40s and low 50s, and it will feel even cooler the breezy winds. Lows fall to near freezing Sunday morning.
