After tracking numerous showers and storms this past week, the coverage of rain will be very low this week. We will also have lower humidity.

Rain chances decrease as some drier air moves in during the upcoming work week. We should only see isolated storms at the start of the week, but eventually rain chances dissipate altogether!

Along with that drop in storm chances is a drop in humidity. Look how the oppressive and humid air fades away as a drier air mass moves in! Even though it'll still be plenty warm enough, overnight lows won't be as warm as the more comfortable humidity arrives.

The tropics may also begin to wake up next week. The National Hurricane Center is giving a 70% chance of development over the next 5 days to an area of disturbed weather in the Bay of Campeche. This will drift north into the Gulf of Mexico next week and will need to be watched for potential development.

Some of the tropical moisture for this system may get pulled up over north Georgia over the weekend and into next weekend.
