Heat hangs around for the start of the Georgia National Fair

Listen to the content of this post:

Temperatures today topped out in the 90’s once again, continuing our string of high temperatures above normal. High pressure is hanging around through the end of the week which will bring dry conditions to the area, but also more heat.

Opening day of The Georgia National Fair looks to be a warm one, with highs in the lower 90’s. The good news is that once again we will see lower humidity throughout the southeast.

Friday should be another nice day, but expect our highs to reach near the mid 90’s by the afternoon. Dry weather should prevail throughout the end of the week.

As we head into the weekend we will start to see moisture return with rain chances back in the forecast by Sunday. The start of next week will see more afternoon storm chances, so make sure to have the umbrellas handy!
