Atlanta will kick off July with thunderstorms and high heat throughout midweek.

For the next several days, afternoon thunderstorms are a threat in addition to above-normal temperatures. Overnight lows should hover in the low 70s for much of the week.

Those planning to spend time outdoors should remain cautious during times of storms and seek shelter as soon a a thunderstorm moves in. Heat can also be a danger and it is important to stay hydrated in such conditions.

Wednesday should see very similar weather to days earlier in the week. With a high hovering near the 95-degree Fahrenheit mark, more storms could develop during the day and into a humid evening.
