Atlanta Weather Forecast - Wednesday

Updated:
ATLANTA, Ga. -
NEAR RE
RECORD LOWS THIS MORNING

As of 5am Wednesday, a new record low temperature was set at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. The previous record for Atlanta was 61 degrees in 1936. As of 5am, we had cooled to 60 – with more cooling expected before sunrise. After starting the morning with these very cool-for-July temperatures in the 40s in some mountain locations and 50s in the metro area, it will turn out to be a warm afternoon. Fair weather cumulus clouds will build in the afternoon heat – leaving us partly cloudy with highs in the low to mid 80s.

SKIES CLOUD OVER FOR THURSDAY

Moisture coming in off the Atlantic Ocean and clouds blowing off of a weather system crossing the Southern Plains will conspire to leave us mostly cloudy for Thursday. A few light showers may be possible – especially east of Atlanta. However, most areas should be dry. The clouds in the morning will keep temperatures out of record territory, but still cool for this point in the season. Most areas will start out the day in the low to mid 60s. Despite the clouds, highs will still climb into the mid 80s.

DAILY CHANCES OF RAIN FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY

As humidity creeps back to summer levels, afternoon heating will help kick off some scattered thundershowers each day from Friday and through the weekend. Each day will be partly to mostly cloudy with thundershowers most likely during the afternoon and early evening. High temperatures will still be in the mid to upper 80s, but with increased humidity, it will feel a little more uncomfortable than the mid 80s we’ll experience today.

IN THE TROPICS

A large area of thunderstorms in the central Atlantic is well organized, but the thunderstorm activity early this morning is not vigorous enough for this to be considered a tropical depression yet. There is still a high (70%) probability that it will reach that intensity within the next 48 hours or less. Computer models are in great agreement that this will track near the northeastern Caribbean before steering northward. The latest on the tropics is always available at www.myfoxhurricane.com
