There is a 10 percent chance of rain tonight that could bring isolated showers and thunder to metro Atlanta. 

“But if you’ve got outdoor plans, the chances are so low, I wouldn’t change them,” Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Brad Nitz said. 

The next significant rain chance is Saturday night, when metro Atlanta faces a marginal risk for severe storms, according to Channel 2. Damaging winds and hail are predicted to hit northwest Georgia. 

A 60 percent chance of rain is predicted Saturday and Sunday. Showers could spread into Monday, which has a 30 percent chance of rain. 

Currently, the temperature is 82 degrees in Atlanta, according to Channel 2.

Atlanta just missed the expected high, reaching 84 degrees in the afternoon. Saturday’s high is also expected to be 84. 


With the rain, the high is expected to drop to 69 degrees Sunday.

That should be good news for pollen. The count dropped from 110 Thursday to 98 particles per cubic meter of air Friday, according to Atlanta Allergy and Asthma.
