Right now, it is 86 degrees in Atlanta. Sunday’s temperatures are expected to reach 89 degrees in Atlanta, up slightly from Saturday’s high of 88.
The record high for Atlanta on May 19 was a sweltering 96 degrees recorded in 1938, Deon said.
That should cool off overnight, however, as a weak front entering North Georgia could trigger a few showers and storms.
The rain could linger into Monday, which has a 30 percent chance of showers. Dry, hot conditions should return on Tuesday and Wednesday as high pressure builds and it continues to heat up, Deon said. Afternoon highs are expected to reach the low 90s next week.
