Heat building over the southern U.S. will reach into parts of Georgia during the final of weeks of August, bringing high heat to the Atlanta area.
“Atlanta is basically looking at their hottest stretch of weather for the entire summer,” AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Brian Edwards said.
“They have had one day of more than 95 F temperatures this whole summer.”
AccuWeather.com Meteorologists are forecasting 95 F or hotter through Saturday.
Highs will climb into the mid-90s, reaching a bit above the normal high of 88 F, into the weekend.
“The weather otherwise, will be dry, but the humidity will factor in, making temperatures feel like 100 F to 105 F each afternoon through the weekend,” Edwards said.
With humidity factored in, AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures will reach into the 100s during the afternoon hours each day.
