If you thought Saturday’s weather was nice, good news: You’re in for more of the same.
The second half of the weekend is expected to be sunny and warm, but not too hot, Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Katie Walls said.
Right now, it is 83 degrees in Atlanta. Temperatures are expected to keep warming up to 86 degrees by 3 p.m.
North Georgia’s streak of low humidity, below average temperatures and dry conditions is expected to continue into the work week.
“Dew points in the 50s this time of year? That’s unheard of,” Walls said. “Typically see these dew points in the 50s in the fall, not in the dead of summer ... It’s certainly nice if you are heading outside.”
There’s no need to pack the rain gear either. While there’s a possibility of an isolated shower or two in far North Georgia, the wet weather should hold off until Tuesday or Wednesday, she said.
With nice weather comes summer roadwork, however, and drivers could see delays on metro Atlanta’s interstates.
In Cobb County, expect overnight delays in the southbound lanes of I-75 as Georgia Department of Transportation crews conduct road work between the Wade Green and Chastain road exits.
Those near the Peachtree Center MARTA station may also hear lots of noise coming from crews working to repair the damage caused by Tuesday’s fire inside the station, MARTA said. The work began Saturday and is expected to last about a week.
