    Atlanta will see a stretch of sunny, warm weather over the next several days, including Independence Day.

    Temperatures will hover in the upper 80s and even reaching the 90 F mark, close to the usual averages. Overnight lows should linger in the upper 60s.


    Skies will be mostly sunny with some clouds drifting in and out.

    As thousands of runners participated in the Peachtree Road Race on Friday morning, they welcomed calmer conditions for the 10k. Follwing years of disruptive weather, runners faced clear skies and temperatures in the upper 60s as the race kicked off in the morning.

    Those planning on spending extended amounts of time in the sun should take proper precautions and continue to apply sunscreen throughout the day.

    As the rest of the holiday continues, temperatures will reach close to the 85 F mark during the day. By the 9 p.m. start of the Centennial Olympic Park fireworks, temperatures will start falling into the upper 70s and clear skies should make for ideal viewing.

    The sunny skies will persist into the evening until a chance of a thunderstorm pops up Sunday evening. There is a chance more evening storms could last into the start of next week.
