Atlanta's Weather Rollercoaster: Fog, Showers, and Sunny Spells on the ForecastSource: Google Street View

The forecast in Atlanta looks to be a mixed bag this week, with residents expecting to navigate through fog, showers, and sporadic sunny skies.

Early today, patches of fog shrouded the city before giving way to mostly sunny conditions and a warm high of around 71 degrees. However, as the day progresses a shift is on the horizon, with mostly cloudy skies and a comfortable low of 56 tonight keeping the spring chill at bay, despite an ongoing east wind blowing at a moderate 5 to 10 mph.

Rain is set to dominate tomorrow’s weather narrative. A steady 70% chance of precipitation promises a wet Tuesday afternoon, bringing showers that could accumulate between a tenth and a quarter of an inch of rain. The risk of a thunderstorm looms large by evening, with a 90% chance of precipitation and continuous gusts of wind that could reach 20 mph, upping the ante and ensuring residents will need to stay weather-aware.

Looking ahead to midweek, the city will experience a fleeting respite with a mere 30% chance of showers early Wednesday before transitioning to partly sunny skies and a high of 68 degrees. However, this respite looks to be a short-lived tease as rain chances edge back up later in the week, culminating in a wet Friday night forecast that’s threatening heavy rainfall and thunderstorms, with a high sticking close to 69 during the day and a low around 57 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

By Saturday, thunderstorms continue to be a possibility, but as the weekend closes out, Atlantans should find some solace under mostly sunny skies with highs dipping to a cooler 59 degrees on Sunday.
