Atlanta should brace for spotty thunderstorms throughout the weekend and even into early next week.

Storms from Friday will continue into Saturday. Temperatures will hover near the 90-degree-F mark for the weekend before starting to warm up early next week.

Overnight temperatures should stay consistent in the low 70s.

Saturday's storms will interrupt partly sunny skies at times throughout the day. Those with outdoor plans should remain vigilant and seek shelter as soon as thunderstorms develop. The rain will continue into the evening with a lower risk of storms developing overnight.

As June comes to a close, the temperatures will begin to rise slightly and there is a small chance of storms for the beginning of next week.
