If you’re a fan of cool autumn mornings and sunny afternoons, this weekend’s for you.
Sunday should be a great day to take in the fall colors as afternoon temperatures reach the low 60s, Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Eboni Deon said.
You’ll also have an extra hour to enjoy the day as clocks roll back for daylight saving time at 2 a.m. Sunday.
Right now, temperatures in Atlanta are at a cool 56 degrees.
The good news is that the afternoon sunshine is expected to stick around for the next few days as temperatures in Atlanta reach the 60s through Wednesday with no rain in sight.
“We’re keeping a good deal of sunshine around,” Deon said. “We’re not really seeing much in the way of rain. The only changes we’re going to see are temperatures warming back to more seasonal levels as we get into the middle of next week.”
As for traffic, there shouldn’t any football-related delays on Sunday as the 1-7 Atlanta Falcons have the week off. The team’s season continues next weekend when Atlanta travels to New Orleans to take on the division-leading Saints.
Drivers in Cobb and Fulton counties may run into some overnight delays on I-285, however, as the Georgia Department of Transportation “rehabilitates” 17 miles of concrete between South Fulton Parkway and Paces Ferry Road.
A complete list of lane closures on the Perimeter is available here.
