Heat will grip Atlanta this week as thunderstorms blast the area through midweek.

With temperatures soaring into the low 90s this week, daytime highs will trend approximately five degrees above normal for this time of year in the city. Overnight lows are expected to hover in the low 70s each night.

In the wake of the thunderstorms, high humidity will make the 90 F temperatures for the end of the week feel even higher.
