Weekend Forecast: scattered showers and a few storms

Although not a washout, we'll stay unsettled through the weekend

ATLANTA — Saturday: Partly sunny with a 40% chance of showers and storms. High: 86°.
Sunday: Mostly cloudy with a 50% chance of showers and storms. High: 84°.
Monday: Mostly cloudy with more showers/storms possible. High: 81°.

Discussion:

A front remains stalled over Georgia through the weekend, leaving us with scattered shower and storm chances each day.

While there is no prominent severe weather threat, storms may be capable of producing heavy rain, gusty winds, and frequent lightning.

Over the weekend, we'll track daily scattered showers and a few t-storms. The rain chance Saturday sits at 40%, followed by a 50% chance Sunday. Highs both days will be in the mid 80s.

For Saturday, the best chance of those pop up showers and storms will arrive in the afternoon.

Through the weekend and into the start of next week, we'll stay in a pattern favorable for scattered showers and storms each day. A cold front swings through late Monday, taking rain chances down to just 20% for the middle of the week. 

Through the weekend, some areas could pick up 1" to 2" of rain, with localized areas receiving more than that.

We are also tracking a developing system in the Bay of Campeche that the National Hurricane Center is now calling 'Potential Tropical Cyclone Four'. It is forecast to become Tropical Storm Danielle before making landfall near the Mexico/Texas border.
