Atlanta Weather Forecast - Wednesday

Updated:
ATLANTA, Ga. -
HUMIDITY REMAINS IN CHECK FOR NOW….

As high pressure remains the dominant feature controlling our weather, we'll expect another pleasant day today. Skies will be clear and humidity will remain at low-for-August levels. After a cool, comfortable morning in the 60s, afternoon temperatures will be heating up. The metro area will flirt with 90 degrees today. And hotter afternoon temperatures will follow for Thursday and Friday. We should notice a big jump in humidity until late Thursday-Friday.

WET AT TIMES FOR THE LABOR DAY WEEKEND…

An increased flow of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico from Saturday through Tuesday will support daily thundershowers. These will happen mainly during the hottest part of the afternoon each day. Rain could be heavy at times Sunday and Monday – but when and where it isn't raining, it will be partly cloudy and warm. If you have outdoor plans, be sure to keep your free FOX 5 Storm Team app on your smartphone handy over the holiday weekend to check the radar to help you dodge any thundershowers.

IN THE TROPICS…

As of 5am this morning, Hurricane Cristobal was still packing maximum sustained winds of 80 mph and resumed a forward motion to the north at 16 mph (after sitting stationary overnight). This will pass between the east coast of the US and Bermuda today. Rip currents, large swells, and rough surf will be the only concerns along the coastline of the southeastern US from North Carolina to Florida. We are monitoring two other areas of potential tropical development. Both areas show only a 10% chance of developing in the next five days, but one is along the Gulf coast near Louisiana/Texas and another in the Atlantic Ocean well east of the Lesser Antilles. Updates are available 24 hours a day at www.myfoxhurricane.com
