Warmer temperatures arrived midweek for the Atlanta area and will stay into the weekend.

High pressure will remain in place across the region. A cold front will slowly move into the South, but will fizzle out before reaching Atlanta, keeping showers and cool air away.

Folks heading to the Braves' playoff game against the Dodgers toward the end of the week will experience beautiful baseball weather.
