Saturday: Mostly sunny and cooler. High of 75°.
Northwest flow continues to push in cool, dry air. This keeps the quiet (and beautiful) weather around through the rest of the week.
It will be a cool start to the day with temps down into the 40s and 50s. We will have plenty of sunshine this afternoon and temperatures will be slightly warmer. Under mostly sunny skies, Highs will reach the low 80s.
Low humidity allowed for our cool mornings and humidity remains low into the weekend.
Highs continue to warm through Friday. Temperatures peak around 83 degrees to end the week.
The only downside to all of this nice weather is that we are in need of rain with no rain chances in sight. Fire weather will be elevated, especially on Friday as winds pick up.
A weak cold front comes through Friday. While that may bring a few clouds to end the week, the front looks like it will come through dry.
The latest drought monitor showed abnormally dry conditions across much of North Georgia and with another dry week, we may see moderate drought return to the region.
A tropical wave in the eastern Atlantic has a high chance of development the next 5 days. At this point, the models take it into the Caribbean. High pressure to the north should keeps this storm moving toward the west. No immediate threats for us. We will let you know if the tracks change.
There's also a tropical depression off the coast of Africa that won't last long.
The next tropical storm that forms will be named Julia.
