SUNDAY’S WEATHER: ‘Return of sunshine’ to finish off the weekend



Below-average temperatures and plenty of sunshine are on the forecast for Sunday.

Morning lows will be cooler than normal while metro Atlanta residents are waking up. Temperatures in the high 40s are projected before sunrise and it will be about 50 degrees by 8 a.m., according to Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Eboni Deon.

Afternoon temperatures will peak at 69 degrees. The average for this time of year is 75.

“Staying on the cool side Sunday, but at least we will see a return of sunshine,” Deon said.

A mostly cloudy sky in the morning will turn into a partly cloudy sky by the afternoon. Atlanta will see a few more clouds on Sunday than there were on Saturday.

The breeze will be light on Sunday as well. Winds will reach up to about 10 mph and run steady throughout the day.

Monday will be another sunny and cool day with the high reaching 68 degrees in Atlanta. The rain will return Tuesday and is expected to stick around until Friday.

Temperatures will remain below average through the week, with the warmest day coming Thursday with a high of 70 degrees.

The pollen count remained in the high range Saturday afternoon. Pollen from trees are primarily contributing to seasonal allergies this time of year. Until the rain returns, expect a few sneezes to interrupt your day.
