Georgia’s warm start to summer will continue on Father’s Day, with temperatures reaching 90 degrees in metro Atlanta.
While an isolated shower or two could be possible in the late afternoon or evening, Sunday should be a pretty nice day to get outdoors with Dad.
The morning will start off with clear skies and temperatures in the upper 60s before warming up around noon, Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Katie Walls said.
“We could be developing some shower and storm action into the afternoon, but it will be very limited like (Saturday),” she said. “Those showers will be few and far between.”
Sunday’s chance of rain in metro Atlanta is just 20%, according to the latest forecast. Summer officially kicked off Saturday afternoon, and at 90 degrees, it was Atlanta’s warmest summer solstice since 2003.
With the start of summer comes an increase in humidity, however, and the next several days will be no exception, Walls said.
As for traffic, drivers could run into some delays this weekend caused by ongoing construction projects across metro Atlanta’s interstates.
Work continues on the I-285/Ga. 400 interchange project, and a right westbound lane of Abernathy Road will be blocked between Glenlake Parkway and Ga. 400 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., according to the Georgia Department of Transportation.
Cobb County drivers could also see some delays in the northbound lanes of I-75 as crews work to repair the bridge over Barrett Parkway. All lanes are expected to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.
