Typical summertime heat and humidity will mark the start of the week for Atlanta through Tuesday.

Tuesday will see temperatures reach the low 90s, with partly sunny skies. Meteorologist Erik Pindrock said it will remain seasonably hot on Wednesday as a cold front pushes from the north.

"The next good chance for some thunderstorms will come Wednesday night as the cold front pushes into northern Georgia and then stalls out," Pindrock said.

Overnight lows will hover around 71 F through Wednesday.

Looking ahead to later in the week, Thursday and Friday will see highs in the mid-80s with the chance for a shower or thunderstorm each day.
