The chance of rain Sunday dropped from 40 percent to a 30 percent chance of rain, but the week ahead brings plenty of opportunity for rain.

Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Brian Monahan said a weakening cold front moving across north Georgia Sunday morning brought a lot of moisture, humidity and muggy weather to metro Atlanta.

“A few strong storms possible today with wind gusts 40+ mph, heavy rain and small hail,” Monahan said.

Monahan said a front over north Georgia about noon helped fuel some showers and storms this afternoon, but a cluster of storms over the Florida panhandle limited development.

“More areas than not will be dry,” Monahan said.

The high temperature Sunday is 91 degrees.

Temperatures just before 5 p.m. were 83 degrees in Blairsville, 89 degrees in Atlanta and 91 degrees in Griffin. Humidity was about 63 percent, Monahan said.

Monday brings a 40 percent chance of rain and high temperatures through Thursday are expected to stay in the low to mid 90s. Skies are expected to be partly cloudy in the upcoming days, with the best chance of rain on Monday and Thursday.
