Metro Atlanta's weather will be sunny, hot and dry this week, Channel 2 Action News Chief Meteorologist Glenn Burns said. An area of high pressure is sitting over the southeast, keeping the rain away. At 6 a.m Tuesday, temperatures were already in the mid-70s.
Burns right now is forecasting only a 20 percent chance, if that, of afternoon thunderstorms this week. The main storm track is over the northern plains instead, he said.
