TUESDAY WEATHER | A hot day, just not as hot

Metro Atlanta will see highs in the upper 80s, reaching 90 in spots, as the official first day of summer approaches.

“A little humid this morning, temperatures not as hot this afternoon,” Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Brian Monahan said. “It’s going to be a hot day again, just not as hot.”

Thursday will herald the arrival of summer and will be the longest day of the year. (For your planning purposes, today will bring us 14 hours and 23 minutes of daylight).

Monahan predicts another dry afternoon.

“No rain in today’s forecast,” he said. “It’s going to be dry for next several days. We really do need the rain.


“The last 30 days have been abnormally dry for many of the counties just south of Atlanta,” the the National Weather Service’s local bureau posted. “At our office in Peachtree City we’ve seen less than 50% of our normal rainfall.”
