ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - Temperatures peaked in the upper 90s across Metro Atlanta this afternoon. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport tied a record high temperature; 98°. Temperatures have cooled back into the 80s, under just a few wispy clouds.

It’ll be a warm night with temperatures slowly cooling through the 80s and back into the low to mid-70s across Atlanta by sunrise Thursday morning.

FIRST ALERT | Heat and humidity combine to make it feel just as hot, if not hotter, Thursday afternoon

While it’ll start relatively comfortable, temperatures heat into the lower 90s by noon; peaking in the mid and upper 90s later Thursday afternoon. There will be more humidity around Thursday. The combination of already hot temperatures and added moisture in the air will make it feel hotter than 100° for several hours Thursday afternoon, early evening.

While still hot... more reasonable heat, added humidity and a daily chance of isolated - to scattered - showers and thunderstorms rule the forecast late week into the weekend.

Stay cool,
