ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - It has been a mostly dry Wednesday inside the Perimeter as of 8:30 p.m. Scattered, to numerous, showers and thunderstorms have been bubbling up east of Atlanta through the evening.

Additional scattered showers and storms are possible through 11 p.m. A few downpours may impact portions of Atlanta., proper. But, storms east of the Metro are generally weakening and that trend is forecast to continue through late evening. Brief heavy rain, frequent lightning are possible with a few storms through 11 p.m.

Temperatures have, quickly, cooled into the upper 70s where rain is falling; still in the 80s where it has been drier. Plan on a gradual cooling trend through the overnight.

Thursday begins mild and muggy, with out-the-door temperatures in the upper 60s and 70s. Areas of dense fog may develop during the morning commute; mainly where heavy rain fell this evening. A mix of sun and clouds rules the midday Thursday forecast. Temperatures warm into the mid-80s by noon and are forecast to peak in the upper 80s and lower 90s later in the afternoon. It’ll feel a few degrees hotter with moisture in the air factored in Thursday afternoon. Isolated, to widely scattered, showers and thunderstorms are forecast to develop through the afternoon and early evening.

Have outdoor plans? Keep them. But, “when thunder roars, move indoors.”

FIRST ALERT | The chance of rain gets a boost Sunday...

While the chance of rain has been increased Sunday, there is some uncertainty in just how many neighborhoods actually deal with wet weather Sunday afternoon and evening. Your best plan of action is to keep outdoor plans, but remind yourself to have a ‘plan b’. Keep a casual eye on the forecast.

Have a great evening,
