The rest of the week around Atlanta will remain unsettled as a stationary front remains draped over the region.

Summertime heat and humidity will provide the fuel for showers and thunderstorms to form along the front.

Heavy downpours will be possible at times, although these storms will likely remain below severe criteria.

High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler as the clouds and rain put a damper on afternoon heating.

Low temperatures will continue to hover in the lower 70s.

Improving conditions will arrive for the weekend however.

The threat for showers and storms will diminish and a tad bit more sunshine will be around. Folks who may need to attend to outdoor activities will want to push them off until Saturday or Sunday if they can.

High temperatures will rise back into the upper 80s to near 90, closer to the average of 89 for this time of the year.

Looking ahead to next week, Typhoon Neoguri will impact the weather pattern across the East with an increase in storms expected in the Southeast.
