ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - Summer weather prevails as we round-out the weekend. Under a mix of sun and clouds, temperatures have warmed into the upper 80s and lower 90s across North Georgia and Metro Atlanta. A few showers and thunderstorms have managed to bubble up in the afternoon heat, as of 3 p.m.

The forecast remains seasonably hot and humid through early evening. While more isolated showers and thunderstorms are expected through sunset, the risk of rain at any one spot remains low. The greatest, but still spotty, chance of rain is north of Atlanta this afternoon and evening.

The forecast dries out overnight. Under a mix of stars and clouds, temperatures gradually cool through the 80s and into the 70s this evening. It’ll be muggy. Patchy fog may develop after midnight.

Aside from patchy fog, Monday morning will be pleasant. Any areas of ‘gloom’ will be gone by 9 a.m. as sunshine takes over the forecast. Temperatures warm into the mid and upper 80s by noon; peaking in the upper 80s and lower 90s between 3:30 and 5:30 p.m. or so. Once again, only spotty showers and thunderstorms are forecast to develop.

A similar forecast returns Tuesday, ahead of a boost in the chance of showers and thunderstorms heading into mid-week.

Enjoy your evening,
