ATLANTA - It seems like the number of days in the 90s is never ending -- but there may be relief in sight.
Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Glenn Burns said that Friday's high temperature reached 98 degrees, shattering the old record of 95 degrees set in 1991.
Isolated storms and showers moved through the metro late Friday night and were expected to fizzle out throughout the evening.

A tropical system over the Bahamas could bring cooler temperatures and a chance for rain later this weekend.
We have a new tropical depression and it will eventually become Tropical Storm Humberto and then Hurricane Humberto with the latest projection. Sunny and hot for us with rain along the GA coast. #WSBTV pic.twitter.com/WeHf4G10Lx— Glenn Burns (@GlennBurnsWSB) September 13, 2019
Saturday will see clouds and showers with a 10 degree temperature drop from Friday.
Schools changing their day because of the heat
Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Katie Walls joined Channel 2 Action News This Morning LIVE from Denmark High School in Forsyth County. That's the site of Sports Zone Game of the Week.
Walls said the heat will make a dangerous day of students all over the state.
Schools across the area are making changes to their days - because of this heat.
In Gwinnett County, some schools are having recess earlier before the temperatures get dangerously hot. The district is also making sure the drivers who take your kids to and from school stay safe
"We also have provided our bus drivers with evaporative bandanas that can help them cool off," said Gwinnett County schools spokesperson Sloan Roach.
In Clayton County, all outdoor activities are canceled Friday.
In Gwinnett County, it's up to individual schools to make those decisions.
