ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - The last few showers and thunderstorms that managed to develop this evening will diminish before midnight. Mostly cloudy and mostly dry weather is in-store tonight.

Temperatures cool through the 80s, and eventually in the 70s, under a mix of sun and clouds.

Friday begins muggy with lots of clouds around. Temperatures will be in the low to mid-70s through the morning commute inside the Perimeter. Further out, temperatures are forecast to bottom-out in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Patchy areas of fog are possible before 9 a.m.

Temperatures warm into the mid-80s, or so, by noon and are forecast to peak in the upper 80s and lower 90s later in the afternoon. As temperatures heat up, clouds will grow taller. A few showers and thunderstorms are forecast to develop through the afternoon, early evening. While not everyone sees rain, what storms do manage to develop will produce brief heavy rain and lots of lightning.

The same weather setup repeats itself Saturday. Plan on seasonably hot and humid weather with a chance of afternoon and evening rain.

FIRST ALERT | The chance of rain increases Sunday...

The chance of rain and storms gets a boost Sunday. The day will not be a washout. There could be more rain around during the afternoon and evening; making it a bit more likely that your outdoor plans could be impacted. Don’t cancel your plans, but have a ‘plan b’. Keep a casual eye on the forecast.

Have a great evening,
