Warmest start to July 4

Atlanta saw record heat to start the Fourth of July this year.

The low temperature in Atlanta on Thursday was 77 degrees, which is the warmest low temperature on record for July 4.

The low temperature in Atlanta is typically 71 degrees each July 4.

Despite our warm start, we won't break a record high today in Atlanta. Highs are forecast to reach into the low 90's this afternoon, while the record high is 99 from 1948.
