Atlanta Weather Forecast - Tuesday

Updated:
ATLANTA, Ga. -
ANOTHER DAY OF SCATTERED RAIN

As an upper level low spins in the atmosphere - centered in southern Alabama/Mississippi - it will tap into plenty of moisture from the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico that will be directed into north Georgia today.  This will help kick off scattered showers and thundershowers - mainly in the afternoon.  Through the morning, expect lots of clouds with the sunshine peeking through from time to time.  Rain will increase across the area late in the morning.  Showers will travel generally westward or northwestward.  While severe storms are not expected, some areas of heavy rain and lightning can be expected at times.  With clouds more prevalent than sunshine today, it appears high temperatures will once again be cooler than late July averages.  We'll top out in the low to mid 80s (as opposed to nearly 90 degree numbers).


HOTTER TEMPERATURES FOR THE SECOND HALF OF THE WEEK
 
By Wednesday, more sunshine will work into the picture and thunderstorms should be mainly the afternoon/early evening variety that is more typical of the season.  With increased sunshine - and dry conditions for the first half of the day - high temperatures will return the near-normal levels in the upper 80s/low 90s.  A cold front approaching from the northwest Thursday and pushing through on Friday will keep daily chances of scattered storms in our forecast.
 
DRY FOR THE FIRST HALF OF THE WEEKEND
 
Behind the front on Saturday, rain chances will be quite low.  Instead, it will be hot and humid with highs in the low 90s.  Another system approaching from the northwest will bring scattered afternoon thunderstorms back for Sunday.  Even so, highs should reach the low 90s again Sunday afternoon.
 
TROPICAL DEPRESSION #2 UNLIKELY TO SURVIVE THROUGH THE CARIBBEAN

 Tropical Depression #2 formed late Monday in the central Atlantic.  It is a small tropical system packing 35 mph maximum sustained winds and travelling westward quickly at 16 mph.  Many models do not have this system surviving beyond 2-3 days in response to dry air and high wind shear.  Additionally, it appears unlikely to get to tropical storm strength.  You can track the progress of TD #2 anytime at myfoxhurricane.com.
