This past weekend, we experienced some of the hottest temperatures of the year, with the high's registering in the mid to upper 90's with heat indices reaching over 105 degrees in most places. The good news is that the recent storms his weekend helped cool us down but also brought heavy rains and some wind damage. With that said, this week is looking to be more typical of what is expected for this time of the year. As we head into the overnight hours in Athens, we expect to see a scattered thunderstorms in the evening before clearing out to give mostly cloudy conditions with the low heading into the low 70's. For your 4th of July, we expect partly cloudy conditions during the day but there's a 30% chance of rain for the evening with the high peaking into the low 90's and cooling down into the low 70's at night.
For North Georgia, we expect to see mostly the same conditions as Athens. As we go into the overnight hours, we expect to see some scattered thunderstorms in the evening while clearing to give mostly cloudy conditions with the low heading into the upper 60's. For the 4th of July, we expect cloudy conditions during the day while a 20% chance of rain exists for the evening time. High's will peak in the upper 80's and the lows will dip into the upper 60's.
As we look ahead into the week, we'll see the chance for rain exist everyday in the form of a pop-up shower along with temperatures hovering in the upper 80's-low 90's and high humidity values. So have a fantastic and safe 4th of July and remember, "When Thunder Roars, Head Indoors"
