You may not get rain, but you’ll definitely get the heat, metro Atlanta.

Monday will be the 61st day of temperatures in the 90s, according to Channel 2 Action News.

“Most of us stay dry but hot,” meteorologist Karen Minton said.

Temperatures were 85 degrees in Atlanta, 74 degrees in Blairsville and 76 degrees in Griffin just after 10:30 p.m.

Wet weather is expected to be less widespread.

Rain moved through Alpharetta, Cumming and Dawsonville on Monday. A few showers also rolled into Jonesboro and areas north of Atlanta.

But heavy downpours are expected to stay clear of most of metro Atlanta, Channel 2 reported.

Light showers will wet roads in far North Georgia and to the south near Griffin and LaGrange through the rush hour.

“Most of the showers (are) just kind of north and south of the city,” Minton said. “But anywhere along this line, we could see one isolated pop up here or there with some heavy downpours as you head through the evening.”

Rain chances will increase later in the week.

There is a 20 percent chance of rain through Tuesday and a 60 percent chance Wednesday through Saturday.
