Early morning temperatures dipped into the upper 50s across much of metro Atlanta Monday, and for the first time in recent memory, there’s no rain in Channel 2 meteorologist Karen Minton’s three-day forecast.
Readings at 6 a.m. Monday ranged from 58 degrees in Dunwoody, Alpharetta and Peachtree City and 59 in Cartersville, Mableton and Dallas to 65 at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
Normal low for August 26 is 70, the normal high 87.
Atlanta’s high Monday, under sunny skies, will be a few degrees cooler than normal, topping out at 83, Minton predicted.
The sunny skies will continue Tuesday and Wednesday, with highs in the mid-80s and lows in the low to mid-60s.
A 30 percent chance of rain creeps back into Minton’s forecast for Thursday, followed by a 20 percent chance of rain on Friday. Highs could be in the low 90s by Friday, Minton said.
