The hot, breezy weather Sunday should continue into the late afternoon and evening.
The last day of May hit 90 degrees, which set a record in Atlanta for 10 consecutive 90-degree days, Channel 2 meteorologist Eboni Deon said. Right now ,at 87 degrees in Atlanta, we aren’t far from reaching those 90-degree temperatures again.
Deon said the late afternoon Sunday will be partly cloudy and mostly dry, with just a 20% chance of rain.
“We’re going to keep the sunshine around, but we’ll notice a few extra clouds building,” Deon said.
The best chance of rain will be in far North Georgia, she said, though a stray shower or two is possible in metro Atlanta.
The start of the week should be mostly sunny with Monday and Tuesday’s highs reaching the mid to upper 80s.
Tuesday may feel a little muggy, however, as moisture returns to the area and increases humidity levels.
“We’ll notice that drier air eroding and more moisture increasing and we are expected to see a few isolated showers and thunderstorms developing,” Deon said.
The chance of storms increases Wednesday as clouds cover metro Atlanta, bringing with them a 30 to 40 percent chance for scattered showers, Deon said.
That wet weather is expected to stick around through the end of next week.
As for traffic, after a break last weekend because of Memorial Day, crews are back on the roads for projects this weekend.
