ATLANTA - Severe Weather Team 2 is tracking the potential for storms as we head into the overnight hours from Sunday into Monday.

“An approaching cold front will give us a bit of a catalyst, so plan for it now,” said Severe Weather Team 2’s Katie Walls.

Some isolated showers will stick around for the morning commute Monday along with areas of patchy haze and fog.

More scattered showers and storms will pick up around lunchtime as the cold front makes its way into Georgia.

“The best opportunity for showers and storms on your Monday will be directly ahead of the cold front,” Walls said.

Those storms will develop mainly north of Interstate 20.

  • Updated hour-by-hour cloud & rain forecast showing the timeline for shower and storm development each day. 
  • Updated hour-by-hour storm energy forecast showing what areas have the most energy/fuel for storms.
  • Updated tropical information. 

“We will be dealing with areas of heavy rainfall, as well as some of that frequent lightning, and even some gusty winds will be a factor,” Walls said.

Temperatures will top out in the mid to upper 80s on Monday.

Walls said systems in the tropics are developing right now and will likely become named storms over the course of the next couple of days.

One of those systems could bring more of that tropical moisture to our area, increasing the metro’s chance of rain throughout the workweek.
