SUNDAY WEATHER-TRAFFIC: Sunny day in store as Atlanta’s busy weekend continues

Sunday’s weather should be sunny and warm as Atlanta’s busy Labor Day weekend continues.

As much of the Southeast braces for Hurricane Dorian’s arrival, the second half of the weekend is expected to stay dry in North Georgia with temperatures in the high 80s, Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Katie Walls said.


 

“Because of the relatively low humidity, we’re not expecting much of a heat index,” she said.

That’s great news for those planning to cosplay Sunday as Dragon Con continues in Atlanta.

It’s crowded downtown as tens of thousands of costumed comic fans, African-American LGBTQ supporters and college football attendees converge on the city this weekend.

Drivers heading into the city should give themselves plenty of time to get there because of the influx of motorists and pedestrians.

While there’s about a 20% chance of rain forecast on Sunday, Walls said any afternoon showers should be confined to the south side of I-20. 

While it may be nice this weekend, next week’s weather all hinges on one big factor: Hurricane Dorian’s path.

The storm’s latest trajectory shows it could miss Florida entirely, hugging the East Cost before making landfall in the Carolinas midweek.

While that would be a better scenario than first predicted, people living along the Atlantic Coast in Florida and Georgia could still see significant damage as the storm makes its way north.
