A stormy start to the weekend is in store for Atlanta, as thunderstorms will persist Friday and Saturday.

While sunshine and high humidity will return to Atlanta on Friday, another thunderstorm will likely fire up in the afternoon. By Friday night, more persistent thunderstorms will once again slam the city.

As temperatures rise heading into the weekend, thunderstorms will continue to plague the region.

Thunderstorms will persist Saturday. Sunday they will spring up intermittently throughout the area, potentially spoiling plans for those with scheduled Father's Day activities and celebrations outdoors.
