Locally heavy Southern storms and heat will continue in the Atlanta area into early this week.

In addition to disrupting outdoor activities, the storms can cause significant travel delays as they cross major interstate highways and Atlanta International Airport.

Most of the storms through Monday will occur during the afternoon and evening hours, but there will be a few exceptions.

High temperatures will be in the lower 90s F, while overnight lows will be within a few degrees of 70. AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures will peak near 100.
