Today's forecast

Wake-up temps in the 50s across much of metro Atlanta

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.
