Atlanta hasn't had any measurable rain in more than 2 weeks. We now have abnormally dry conditions over much of the metro. We desperately need some rain. Luckily, the pattern will be flipping starting late this weekend with daily chances for showers and storms.

It will be a hot and humid day Saturday.  The rain chances remain on the low end at just 20%. 

On Sunday, we will start with dry conditions as temperatures sit in the 60s, but as we move into the afternoon, expect higher chances for rain with scattered showers and storms possible as temperatures rise into the 80s.

Sunday starts with just isolated morning showers, but scattered showers and storms build in for the afternoon to evening.

Showers and storms will be fairly widespread for the latter part of the afternoon on Sunday.

Rain chances will stay higher for Monday with scattered showers and storms being possible.

Rain chances still stay decent through Wednesday as well with the best stretch of rainfall we have had in a couple of weeks.

With so many rain chances this next week, north Georgia should get some much needed rain. Expect around two inches of rain to occur in the Atlanta area over the next week with most of the rain occurring Sunday and Monday. Parts of the North Georgia mountains may receive 1 to 4 inches over the next seven days.
