Atlanta Weather Forecast - Thursday

Updated:
ATLANTA, Ga. -
COLD FRONT SLOWLY MOVES THROUGH TODAY

 We are tracking a cold front north of Georgia this morning that will gradually push closer to Atlanta and will result in numerous thundershowers later today.  For the morning hours, a stray shower cannot be ruled out, especially in far north Georgia.  Clouds will increase from north to south and humidity will remain high.  It isn't out of the question to get some patchy fog through mid-morning.  After 1pm-2pm, scattered thundershowers will dot the radar screen.  You can expect a few areas of heavy rain and lightning through the early evening.  Severe storms are not expected at this time.

 
DRY FOR SOME, WET FOR OTHERS ON FRIDAY
 
The cold front will either stall over middle Georgia, or simply start drifting back to the north from south Georgia on Friday.  This should spell a fairly big difference in weather conditions across the FOX 5 viewing area, depending on your location.  Areas south of I-20 may still get a scattering of afternoon thunderstorms.  Areas north of I-20 will already feel the benefits of being behind the cold front.  Mostly sunny skies will prevail near and north of Atlanta.  With increased sunshine and a lower chance of rain, temperatures will run near seasonal averages - in the upper 80s to near 90.
 
SUNNY AND HOT WEEKEND
 
Rain and thunderstorms will take a break over the weekend.  Conditions will remain on the muggy side with mostly sunny skies and hot temperatures.  Both weekend days will climb into the low 90s.
 
NEXT COLD FRONT BRINGS PLEASANT CHANGE NEXT WEEK
 
A new cold front will sweep in Monday.  This will bring a 40% chance of rain and storms with it to start the work week.  This front will be more of a "true" cold front.  Behind it on Tuesday and Wednesday, we'll enjoy cooler mornings, somewhat cooler afternoons, and a noticeable drop in humidity down to fall-like levels!
