You might want to keep your umbrella nearby Sunday afternoon. Atlanta’s summer weather pattern continues as showers move into the metro area.
The wet weather will stick around into the evening, according to Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Katie Walls. The main threats include heavy rain, frequent lightning and gusty wind, she said.
Right now it is 86 degrees in Atlanta, but all the moisture in the air is going to make it feel even warmer, Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Eboni Deon said.
It could feel as hot as the mid-90s or even 100 degrees in some parts of North Georgia.
“It’s definitely the air you can wear because the moment you step outside, you will feel it on your skin,” she said of the humidity. The best chance for showers will be after about 2 p.m., Deon said.
The Georgia Department of Transportation suspended all construction projects until Sunday evening for the July Fourth weekend, so drivers shouldn’t worry about road work slowing their commute.
