Pop-up showers and thunderstorms will occur mainly in the afternoon and evening hours each day through the beginning of the week.

"However, precipitation chances will be small as not everyone will get hit with wet weather," Meteorologist Stephen Travis said.

"No fronts will cross through the area, so daytime heating instability will be the guiding factor in where these storms pop up."

It will also remain humid throughout the weekend and into the start of the week with dew points consistently in the middle to upper 60s.

Instability will decrease a little on Sunday and Monday, meaning these days will bring the best chance of dry weather, he said.

"Although there could still be an isolated storm both of those days and neither will be guaranteed dry," Travis said.

More comfortable air will move in on Monday, with highs in the low 80s, but an evening thunderstorm will arise in parts of the area.

Humid air returns on Tuesday with highs in the upper 80s. There will also come several afternoon thunderstorms on Tuesday.

The storms should clear out for the Atlanta Braves game against the Seattle Mariners at Turner Field. First pitch is set for 7:10 p.m. EDT. Evening temperatures should drop into the upper 70s.
