ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - The weather looks fairly quiet and mainly dry at the end of the workweek. After back-to-back 90° days in Atlanta, it will be in the low to mid 80s on Thursday. The best chance of a stray shower is very early in the day. We’ll enjoy a decent dose of sunshine in the afternoon, with the temperature climbing from the upper 60s at sunrise to the mid 70s by noon, and mid 80s by late in the afternoon. You may notice some haze in the sky from the wildfires in Canada, but poor air quality is not expected.

The weather looks great on Friday. You can expect mostly sunny and very warm conditions after a comfortable start to the day. The temperature will be in the 50s to low 60s at dawn before rising to the mid 80s in the afternoon. The humidity will be low on Friday. The weekend starts out great with a lot of sunshine and hot conditions on Sunday. Highs will be near 90 as it stays dry through the evening.

There is a First Alert for scattered thunderstorms on Sunday and Monday. Right now, it looks like the best chance of storms on Sunday is in the afternoon/evening. With more clouds and a rain threat, the temperature will only be in the 70s/80s on Sunday and Monday. Some heavy downpours are possible with high humidity - so the air conditioners will not get a break.
