    Atlanta: Weekend Storms to Push Out Dry, Sunny Weather

    By By Brian Lada, Meteorologist

    Atlanta will see more dry, sunny days before additional storms roll in towards the weekend.

    High pressure moving overhead will bring with it cooler nights and lower humidity that will last through the second half of the week.

    These dry conditions paired with low humidity will make for good weather for those looking to spend some time in the outdoors.

    Keep in mind that the sun angle this time of year is still very high and can lead to sunburn despite the cooler conditions. Remember to apply sunscreen if you plan to be out in the sun for an extended period of time.


    High temperatures through Friday are forecast to run in the lower 80s followed by overnight temperatures in the 60s.

    The average high for mid-July in Atlanta is 89 F with a typical overnight low of 71 F.

    Showers and thunderstorms look to return for the weekend with temperatures remaining 5 to 10 degrees below normal.

    Those headed to the ballpark to watch the Atlanta Braves host the Philadelphia Phillies this weekend may want to get the raincoats ready with showers and thunderstorms in the forecast for both games.
