ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - It did not take long for hot and humid weather to return to north Georgia. Tuesday reached the low 90s in Atlanta, and we’ll see more of the same for the rest of the week. Wednesday will start with clouds and possibly a few showers for the morning commute. Clouds will burn to partly sunny skies with the temperature climbing through the 80s into the upper 80s to low 90s by early to mid afternoon. It will be humid, so expect it to feel like the mid to upper 90s.

Scattered storms will develop in the afternoon. They’ll be hit or miss, so not everyone will get rain. Those that do see storms could get heavy downpours and frequent lightning. The threat of storms may diminish some overnight.

Isolated to scattered storms return on Thursday afternoon with highs again near 90. There’s a slightly lower risk of storms Friday and Saturday with typically hot/humid weather - highs still near 90. Right now, it looks like there may be a few more storms on Sunday afternoon than what we’ll see on Saturday. Keep that in mind if you have outdoor plans!
