ATLANTA - Severe thunderstorms downed trees and left six people injured Saturday when lightning struck the East Lake Golf Club during the Tour Championship.
Storms are expected to taper off Saturday night.
Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Katie Walls said we will see a major cool-off Sunday, with a high of just 80 degrees. Temperatures will be back into the 90s by midweek but then cool back down over the six to 10-day outlook.
Ah, the roller coaster that is Georgia weather! We'll cool down for a couple days then heat back up late week, then cool back down in the 6-10 day outlook! Considering this time of year the average high is 88°, some cooler temps will feel nice IMO :-) pic.twitter.com/tXAUC56TFu— Katie Walls (@KatieWallsWSB) August 25, 2019
