The last weekend of summer in 2017 looks like it will be an enjoyable one in metro Atlanta.

“It’s hard to believe we’re at the end of summer,” Channel 2 meteorologist Brian Monahan said Saturday. Fall begins Friday.

Dry air and lots of sunshine will make Saturday and the next few days pleasant.

The weather should be at 80 by noon, on its way to an expected high of 85, Monahan said. That should mean nice weather for such activities as Music Midtown at Piedmont Park. There’s just a 10 percent chance of rain.

That’s slightly above Friday’s high of 83, which is a bit warmer than usual for this time of year.

Sunday should be slightly warmer, with a forecast high of 86. There’s no rain in sight, which means all should be well for the open roof at Mercedes-Benz Stadium for the Falcons’ 8:30 p.m. game with Green Bay.

And for the many people still reeling from Tropical Storm Irma, you can breathe easier about the new storm forming. Hurricane Jose is not expected to cause problems in Atlanta. In fact, it could make matters more pleasant.

“As Jose spins off the East Coast,” Monahan said, “that’s going to bring some dry air to North Georgia.

About 4 p.m., the temperature was 84 in Atlanta.
