Another hot day and a chance of storms is in store for Tuesday.
Severe Weather Team 2 said we had the hottest day of the year this weekend, but the heat isn't going away soon.
A heat advisory was in effect for Monday afternoon and evening for parts of metro Atlanta and North Georgia.
Monday marked the 50th day with temperatures in the 90s. The record stretch of heat was in 2011 when we were in the 90s for 90 consecutive days.
Tuesday, there will be extreme heat in north Georgia again with heat indices as high as 105 degrees.
Some much-needed rain will follow. Severe Weather Team 2 says some strong to severe storms are possible on Tuesday.
Some strong to severe storms are possible Tuesday night across far north Georgia. I'll have the latest live on Channel 2 at 5 and 11 pm. pic.twitter.com/bryBS7e9X0— Brad Nitz (@BradNitzWSB) August 12, 2019
