Forecast | Stretch of warm December weather

Isolated showers possible each day.

ATLANTA — Tonight: Cloudy skies. Low: 60°.
Thursday: Partly cloudy and warm. Slight chance for rain. High: 74°.
Friday: Mostly cloudy.  Isolated showers possible.  High of 72°.

Discussion:

Fog will build up once again through the overnight.  By Thursday morning, visibility will be limited to 1 mile or less across much of North Georgia.  This will make for another dreary start to the morning.

You may want to give yourself some extra time for the morning commute as the fog will make driving more hazardous.

There will be more clearing on Thursday compared to the last few days, but cloud cover will still hold strong.  We'll go from overcast and foggy to partly / mostly cloudy by Thursday afternoon.

Isolated showers will be possible, although rain will be spotty.

Morning lows will fall to near 60° then temperatures climb into the low to mid 70s. It will be another unusually warm December day.

We'll likely again end up just a few degrees shy of the record highs in Atlanta, but it will be close! The forecast high in Atlanta is 74°, and the record is 76°.

Temperatures will get cooler into the weekend behind a cold front on Friday.

In addition to the drop in temperatures, Friday's cold front will elevate rain chances for the end of the week.  Showers remain isolated, but rain looks more promising on Friday compared to Thursday.

We'll dry out for a beautiful day on Saturday, but it won't be long before rain returns to the forecast.  Scattered showers possible by Sunday.
