Atlanta weather | 20 percent chance of rain in metro Atlanta

Isolated showers and storms started moving into the north Georgia mountains Wednesday afternoon, according to Channel 2 Action News.

While they had reached Cherokee County by 2 p.m., the chances of rain in other parts of metro Atlanta were slight.

Some areas may only see spotty showers, if anything.

“So this is not going to be a day you’ll be washed out with showers and storms, and we’re not looking at severe [weather],” Channel 2 meteorologist Karen Minton said.

Rain chances, at 20 percent Wednesday, were expected to increase to 30 percent Thursday and 40 percent Friday.

“And right now the models are trying to clear us out early on Friday, giving us a great weekend setup with sunny skies, lower humidity and highs in the lower 80s,” Minton said.

In the meantime, humidity is increasing, and the forecast calls for a high of 85 degrees by 3 p.m. Wednesday in Atlanta.

Temperatures were 85 degrees in Atlanta, 79 degrees in Blairsville and 85 degrees in Griffin just after 5:30 p.m.
