ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - A wet August continues with isolated to scattered thunderstorms on tap for the weekend. Most of the time it will be dry but passing rain showers and thunderstorms are possible both Saturday and Sunday. The best chance of rain this weekend may be late Saturday night into ealry Sunday and then again late in the day or during the evening on Sunday.

Saturday will be cloudy early then become partly cloudy. A few showers cannot be ruled out in the morning, but there’s a better chance it will be mostly rain-free. The temperature will reach the upper 70s to low 80s early in the afternoon and top out in the mid 80s later in the day. Isolated to scattered showers and storms may pop-up in the afternoon and continue at night.

Sunday will be partly to mostly cloudy with more showers and thunderstorms possible. The best chances are early in the day, and then again in the late-afternoon and evening. Highs will be in the low to mid 80s.

We have issued another First Alert for Monday as the shower and thunderstorm threat continues with highs closer to 80°. It looks like it will get a bit drier in the middle of next week.
