Atlanta Weather Forecast - Thursday

Updated:
SUNNY AND PLEASANT TODAY
High pressure centered northeast of Georgia will supply one more day of abundant sunshine and pleasant temperatures.  It will be a cooler morning than yesterday (most spots dip into the 40s at sunrise), but temperatures will rebound nicely into the mid to upper 70s for the afternoon.  A couple of hours before sunset, clouds will begin to increase.

COLD FRONT SWEEPS A FEW THUNDERSHOWERS THROUGH EARLY FRIDAY

With increased clouds this evening, spotty showers are possible - especially after midnight.  But the greater (albeit, still very small) chance of rain accompanies the cold front that sweeps through Friday morning. As a center of low pressure lifts into the Great Lakes, the trailing cold front will sweep through to bring a brief period of scattered showers during the morning hours. There is enough instability to potentially support some thunder and lightning, too, but severe storms are not expected.  Rainfall amounts should be light (1/10" or even less) and confined mainly to areas near and north of Atlanta. Behind this rain, Friday afternoon will be partly cloudy, breezy, and pleasant with west winds at 10-20 mph and high temperatures in the mid 70s.

WARM AND DRY WEEKEND....TURNING STORMY NEXT WEEK...

The weather will be tranquil and a little warmer than average for late April over the weekend. Low temperatures in the metro area will be near 60 with highs in the low 80s both weekend days. The next low pressure system will roll out of the Rockies for early next week. It will push a warm front and associated scattered thunderstorms into our area Monday night through Tuesday morning. This system will likely have quite a severe weather history behind it before it arrives here (severe weather will be expected across the Southern Plains over the weekend) - but it remains to be seen how potent it will be once it gets into Georgia. We'll need to keep an eye on this for possible stronger storms or severe weather.
