We're tracking the timing of when you could see rain this weekend, throughout the evening on Channel 2 Action News.
"A big area of high pressure is dominating our weather, giving us the wind from the southwest that is very, very light and weak steering currents in the atmosphere, and it's very hot, with temperatures reaching 87 degrees. Tonight we're going to see those clouds burn off," said Severe Weather Team 2 Chief Meteorologist Glenn Burns.
Saturday is going to start off clear but by midafternoon, showers and thunderstorms will develop across north Georgia with the heating of the day.
"Most of us stay dry, with about a 30% chance of rain for any one location," Burns said.
Those storms will continue to diminish as temperatures cool throughout the evening.
"If you have plans for Saturday night, you're going to be in great shape," Burns said.
Highs will remain around 87 degrees throughout the weekend, with just a 10% chance of rain and storms on Sunday.
By the beginning of the new work week, we could see our first 90 degree days of the season.
