ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - It has been two weeks since measurable rain in north Georgia, and the dry stretch continues through the midweek. It will also stay warm and mainly clear with highs in the 80s and lows in the 50s to low 60s.

Expect a lot of blue sky on Tuesday with the temperature climbing to near 80° by midday, and to the mid 80s in the afternoon. It will not be humid, so it will feel great outside. Wednesday looks mostly sunny to partly cloudy with highs in the low to mid 80s.

We may see a few more clouds on Thursday, but there’s a good chance that the temperature reaches 80 again around Metro Atlanta. Mainly dry conditions likely last through Friday before shower chances increase Friday night into Saturday morning. The showers will be ahead of a cold front that will bring much cooler weather over the weekend. Look for highs in the 70s Saturday afternoon, but a northwesterly breeze may make it feel cooler. The temperature will dip all the way to the 40s and low 50s by dawn on Sunday - the coolest morning of the season so far. Sunday afternoon looks sunny but fall-like with highs near 70.

Dry weather likely lasts through the middle of next week with temperatures moderating into the mid 70s.
