SUNDAY’S WEATHER-TRAFFIC: Warm day on tap, but afternoon showers are possible

The second half of the weekend is expected to start off nice and warm, but isolated showers are possible in the afternoon and evening. 

Sunday’s high should reach the mid-80s, according to Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Eboni Deon. Those looking to spend time outdoors, however, may want to head out earlier in the day.

“It will be slightly cooler Sunday afternoon,” she said. “We’ll have a few more clouds in place, mostly dry, with an isolated shower or two popping up.”

Showers are expected to become more widespread on Monday as the chance of rain increases to 30% in metro Atlanta. The start of the work week will also be slightly cooler, with a high of just 81 degrees, according to the latest forecast.


As for traffic, some drivers could run into delays on the Perimeter as Georgia Department of Transportation crews complete road projects.

Two right lanes of I-285 South will be blocked near the Cobb-Fulton county line until about 6 p.m. Sunday, GDOT said. 

Drivers should also expect overnight delays for a road resurfacing project on Freedom Parkway between the Downtown Connector and Ponce de Leon. 


The roadwork should wrap up by 5 a.m. Monday.
