SUNDAY’S WEATHER-TRAFFIC: Another warm day ahead, but many will stay home

Atlanta’s warm weather is expected to stick around through the weekend, though many will likely choose to remain at home and avoid large crowds. 

Saturday topped 80 degrees in the city, and while Sunday won’t be quite as warm, it should stay nice for most of the day, Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Eboni Deon said. 

Some light afternoon showers could make their way south from the North Georgia mountains as a warm front moves in, she said, so it may best to have an umbrella handy just in case.

“As it moves southward, we’ll have some afternoon showers, possibly even some isolated storms as it slides along that front,”Deon said. 

Atlanta’s high is expected to be about 70 degrees ahead of a pretty major cooldown on Monday morning.

“We’re still going to feel those springlike temperatures but it won’t be quite as warm as (Saturday),” Deon said. 

The workweek will likely get off to a cool start as a wedge moves in over metro Atlanta’s counties, she said. Monday’s temperatures aren’t expected to make it out of the 50s. 

That cool weather should be short-lived, however, as temperatures bounce back on Tuesday and Wednesday to a high of nearly 70. Unfortunately, wet weather is expected to return midweek, bringing with it the possibility of rain each day through the start of next weekend.
